Facebook Dating is now live in Canada and Thailand. Facebook Dating doesn’t have its own app; instead, it’s nestled inside the core Facebook app and it is being positioned as a way to find serious partners rather than casual matches. So the Tinder bunch need not apply apparently. The service will recommend matches that users aren’t already friends with, but who share dating preferences, interests and if they’d like, mutual friends or groups and events.
Personally, I would think that Facebook would want to fix the numerous issues that they have with protecting user data before launching a dating platform. But clearly they have other priorities.
