Will You Ditch Tinder for Facebook’s Dating Feature?
Facebook has announced a sleuth of changes to its various platforms. One of the interesting change is the addition of a dating feature called ”secret crush.” It will allow users to select nine of their Facebook friends with whom they have a romantic interest. If the other user responds to the request, both users are notified of a match. Facebook’s earliest version was to let users know whether the other user is single or taken. The feature is launched in some of the countries such as Canada, Mexico and others. Asian countries will be added later. However, it seems that people will take their time to trust Facebook with their most valuable information. The recent data privacy scandals might play a role when people decide to use this latest dating feature. So, will you ditch Tinder for Faceb0ok’s dating feature? Link.
