Nz dating service online
Facebook begins publicly testing its online-dating product, called Dating, in Colombia today.The service was first announced at the annual F8 conference in May this year, and will likely be available in other locations in the future.For example, the organizer of an Alcoholics Anonymous group, or someone planning an event at a church, can’t turn the dating feature off.“The ethos there is that if people want to date, it shouldn’t be in the hands of another person,” says Sharp.The only information ported over is your age and first name; you will need to manually fill out additional required information including your verified location, gender, and the gender(s) of the people you’re interested in matching with.You can also specify your height, religion, job title, where you work, where you went to school, and whether you have children.This story was originally published on September 20, 2018.
To do so, you’ll need to “unlock” each event or group manually; by default users won’t be able to search for a missed connection unless the other person opts-in to being discovered.
Facebook restricts potential matches to people located less than 100 kilometers away (there will be a different metric-system equivalent when the product rolls out in the US).
Like other dating apps, you can also choose only to match with people who live nearby, have children, share the same religion, or fit into a specific age or height bracket.“We’re trying to connect people that are open to getting to know each other in the future,” says Nathan Sharp, a product manager at Facebook.
The social network is also introducing two new major features.
The first, called Second Look, allows users to re-review someone they previously said they weren't interested in.
