By utilizing the trove of data it already has about users, Facebook has the ability to become a powerful player in the online dating space.
While many dating apps have relied on Facebook data for years—like to show you when a potential match has mutual friends—they’ve never been able to leverage everything.
To sort through potential matches, you'll need to tap “Not Interested.” Facebook Dating users won’t be able to start a conversation by simply saying “Hey.” Just like the dating app Hinge, users will instead need to respond directly to one of a potential date’s nine photos or questions, like “Was that taken in Morocco? ”Facebook Dating messages will live in their own inbox separate from Facebook Messenger, and you won’t be able to send links, photos, or payments for security reasons.
