At last year's annual developers' conference, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg talked about how Facebook Dating service can change the way people date. Finally, the company has launched the service in the US with 19 other countries.
Here's the list of the countries: US, Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Canada, Columbia, Chile, Ecuador, Guyana, Laos, Mexico, Malaysia, Peru, Paraguay, the Philippines, Suriname, Singapore, Thailand, Uruguay, and Vietnam.
If you are searching for India in this list, you might get disappointed because as of now there's no word about its availability in India. However, it should be available in India soon as a number of South-East Asian countries are getting it.
Apart from letting people use the service for finding a date, the service is offering a number of other features including connecting Facebook and Instagram stories with the dating service. However, the feature is not live yet and users might have to wait till the end of the year to use it.
In a blog post, Facebook wrote, "Today people are asked to make a decision as to whether or not they like someone immediately based on a static profile. To help you show, rather than tell, who you are, we're bringing Stories to Dating."
Facebook is also rolling out another feature called Secret Crush which was announced at F8 2019. The service lets the users explore romantic relationships within their circle of friends.
This feature will also include Instagram, which means that after connecting Facebook Dating profile with Instagram profile, users will be able to look for partners from their Instagram followers as well.
Additionally, users of the dating service will also be able to share their Instagram posts on their dating profiles.
This might be great news for people complaining about not getting matches on Tinder. People might have to wait a while before the service launches in India though.
