Facebook Dating is finally launching in the US for everyone after spending almost an entire year in a limited testing stage. Also available in other 19 countries across South America and Asia, Facebook Dating is expected to hit Europe by early 2020. Obviously, the Dating profile is separate from the main Facebook profile.

Facebook users who were trying to use the social network as a dating website can finally create a Facebook Dating profile and try their luck on a dedicated platform. After almost a year since the start of the first public limited testing run, Facebook Dating is now launching in the US.

According to the official press release, Instagram posts can be integrated directly into Facebook Dating profiles, Instagram followers can be added to the Secret Crush lists, and — by the end of the year — those interested will be able to add Facebook and Instagram Stories to their Dating profile as well.

Facebook Dating profiles are separated from the main Facebook profiles and can only be created by those who are 18 years of age or older and have downloaded that latest version of the Facebook app for their handsets. The service does not require swiping left or right since all Dating users can post comments and like other user profiles. All the Dating activity stays in Facebook Dating — at least until proven otherwise, of course.

Right now, Facebook Dating is available in the US and the following 19 other countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Laos, Malaysia, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, the Philippines, Singapore, Suriname, Thailand, Uruguay, and Vietnam. European Facebook users should be able to dive in by early 2020.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
