Dating very intelligent service
The rest of this story outlines Facebook Dating's existing features as they were launched in Colombia.Facebook begins publicly testing its online-dating product, called Dating, in Colombia today.It’s Just Lunch offers clients a chance to get acquainted over lunch.The firm does all the work, making reservations, clearing the matches with customers.You can also specify your height, religion, job title, where you work, where you went to school, and whether you have children.You can round out your profile with up to nine total photos or ice-breaker questions provided by Facebook.Like other dating apps, you can also choose only to match with people who live nearby, have children, share the same religion, or fit into a specific age or height bracket.“We’re trying to connect people that are open to getting to know each other in the future,” says Nathan Sharp, a product manager at Facebook.“It’s all about opting-in and making sure that people are really intentional.”As part of that mentality, Facebook Dating doesn’t have a right-or-left swiping mechanism.
Facebook restricts potential matches to people located less than 100 kilometers away (there will be a different metric-system equivalent when the product rolls out in the US).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.If you want to start swapping photos or news articles with a potential match, you’ll need to give them your phone number or switch to another messaging service. They know what they're doing, and they do everything for you. "Being a member of It's Just Lunch is like having trusted friends set you up, but even better, because they're professionals.
