It’s official. Facebook is now getting into online dating.
This is kind of weird to me, considering that every dating app I know about cuts right into your Facebook information as it is. Oh, but wait:
“You won’t see anyone you’re already friends with on Facebook, nor will you see people you’ve blocked.”
I want guaranteed proof that this will not happen. I feel like most apps have prevented me with people I never ever ever want to see again, let alone talk to or date – so this is quite an advantage.
Hmmm — “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.”
Didn’t they just get breached? Like really, really screwed? Is this really the time for “going steady” with dating?
It just rolled out in Colombia, and I’m praying for all of those who use it.
The Dateline episode is already being developed in my mind.
