Facebook to offer dating service for first time

2 May 2018

Facebook Inc plans to add a dating service, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said yesterday. Zuckerberg told software developers at Facebook's annual F8 conference that a dating service would be a natural fit for the company. The feature would be for finding long-term relationships, "not just hook-ups," he said.

The dating service is being built with privacy in mind, so that friends will not be able to see a person's dating profile, Zuckerberg said. Facebook said it will take a few months to build the update.
