E-NEWS: Facebook set to Launch Dating Service


Social media giant, Facebook has declared its intention to launch a dating service to assist users in connecting with individuals who are not their friends to enable them to meet new people.

The company’s founder Mark Zuckerberg revealed this at Facebook’s F8 Conference in San Jose, California.

“If we are focused on helping people build meaningful relationships then perhaps this is the most meaningful of all… so we are launching a whole set of new features around dating,” Zuckerberg said.

The feature will be aimed at “building real, long-term relationships, not just hookups,” Zuckerberg said, adding that since “there are 200 million people on Facebook that list themselves as single… clearly, there’s something to do here.”

Zuckerberg included that friends won’t be able to see one another’s dating profiles, as part of its privacy policy for the new feature.
