Facebook Dating launching today in 20 countries

Facebooks Dating feature goes live in the US and 19 other countries India not on the list Facebook Dating

Facebook Dating comes as the popularity of online dating grows: In 2016, 15% of all US adults said they had used online dating services, up from virtually none in 2005, according to the Pew Research Center.

Secret Crush lets you match with people you already know on Facebook and/or Instagram. Available in the U.S. among 20 countries initially, the new dating profile service takes on existing rivals like Match, Bumble, and Tinder, with the promise of easier profile creation so that you don't get stuck trying to think of hobbies outside of "reading" and "running gleefully along beaches".

Oh Facebook, you just can't seem to stop tripping over your own big, dumb feet, can you?

Here's are the three dopest features Facebook Dating has to offer that makes it different from other apps you might have tried. In recent years, many dating apps have moved away from asking their users to login with Facebook credentials in a bid to be less reliant on the social media behemoth.

Matches on Facebook Dating are suggested to you, and there's no swiping.

The company says it has opted to not show a user's gender identity to potential matches in order to respect user privacy.

Additionally, you can choose whether you want friends of your Facebook friends to be suggested as your matches, or if youd prefer to match with people outside your friends of friends. For example, individuals can opt-in to share photos posted on Facebook or Instagram to their Dating profile, or add Instagram followers to Dating's Secret Crush feature, which allows for indicating crushes among Facebook friends - and as of Thursday, Instagram followers - to see if the feelings are mutual.

Say goodbye to unprompted "hey" DM's on Facebook and hello to prompted yet still uninspiring "hey" DM's on Facebook Dating. You can add up to 36 pictures from your Instagram account.

Your Dating activity will stay on Dating and not shared on your regular Facebook usage. You will be able to hit a "like" and send a corresponding message to any profile on Facebook Dating. "Safety, security and privacy are at the forefront of this product".

From there, people can match with others who have similar interests or from their own "Secret Crush" lists.

Facebook says it plans to launch Facebook Dating in Europe by early 2020.

You'll soon be able to connect your Facebook and Instagram Stories to Facebook Dating. If you like someone, you can "like" them by tapping a heart icon.

The service, which sits inside Facebook's main mobile app but is totally separate from users' normal Facebook profiles, has been undergoing tests in south-east Asia and Latin America for almost a year. You can, however, share details of their live location with via Messenger to trusted contacts.
