Facebook Dating Now Accessible in Europe – To help more people establish meaningful relationships based on common interests, events, and organizations, we’re launching Facebook Dating in Europe today. Since the launch of Facebook Dating in the 20 countries where it is available, over 1.5 billion connections have been formed.
Facebook Dating is an opt-in area of the Facebook app where you may create a profile in a matter of seconds. Facebook Dating enables you to reveal your true self with others, giving you a more accurate picture of who they are.

The following are some major features:
When it comes to Dating, stories allow you to share experiences from your daily life in order to form a genuine connection with someone who shares your interests. You can show people who you are and get to know someone better before and after your match if you choose to publish Facebook or Instagram Stories on your Dating profile.
You may utilize the Secret Crush feature to check into potential Facebook and Instagram relationships with individuals you already know. Facebook Dating will not suggest any of your Facebook friends as potential matches, but you can pick up to nine of your Facebook friends or Instagram followers if you use Secret Crush. If your crush adds you to their Secret Crush list, it’s a match. Your crush will be unaware that you’ve submitted their name if they aren’t on Dating, don’t build a Secret Crush list, or don’t add you to it.
You may view other people who are using Facebook Dating and have similar interests by adding your Facebook events and groups to Dating. So, if you’re seeking a dog lover, see who else is on Dating and belongs to the same pet owner groups as you.
Have you been matched in Dating and are ready to video chat? We’re experimenting with a feature that lets you start a video discussion with your match by just tapping the video icon in your discussion. When you start the conversation, they will receive an invitation that they must accept in order to join your video conference and get to know each other better. Your first name and Dating profile photo will be shown when you first pick up the phone.

We designed Dating with safety, security, and privacy in mind because finding a love partner is such a personal experience. We worked with several professionals in these domains to make safety standards easily available and to build protections into Facebook Dating, such as the ability to report and ban people, as well as the ability to block people from sharing photos, links, money, or videos in chats. Friends who are active on Facebook will not be offered as potential matches, nor will they be told that you have joined Dating. Your Facebook News Feed will not show your Dating profile, chats, or individuals you like or match within Dating, for example. We’re working hard to make Facebook Dating a friendly place for those looking for dates and long-term partnerships. Find out more about how Dating protects people’s privacy.
