Friends and dating site
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).
Facebook enters the dating-service market years after competitors like Tinder and Bumble, but it starts with a huge advantage: Most people already have Facebook accounts.
Facebook begins publicly testing its online-dating product, called Dating, in Colombia today.
The service was first announced at the annual F8 conference in May this year, and will likely be available in other locations in the future.
In May, for example, Tinder said it was testing a new feature called Places, which allows users to match with people who like to hang out at the same spots, like bars, restaurants, or clubs.
The product relies on information from Foursquare, rather than Facebook.And while Dating works only on mobile right now, it doesn’t require downloading an additional application to your phone.
