Facebook Dating could help reveal a “secret crush” on your friends list.
The feature works a lot like Tinder, but can also help you discover which of your pals already fancies you.
You can create a Facebook Dating profile in seconds, and start hunting for a love.
Find the service inside the main Facebook app.
One of the most interesting features of Facebook Dating is called Secret Crush.
It’s designed to help you forge romantic bonds with people you already know on Facebook.
You can select up to nine of your Facebook friends or Instagram followers who you’re interested in.
If that person adds you to their Secret Crush list too, you’ll be matched together.
But if the person isn’t on Dating or doesn’t put you on their list, they won’t know you’ve entered their name.
It’s a safe way to test the waters with a potential lover.
Facebook Dating lets you match with people who have similar interests to you.
You can share Facebook or Instagram Stories to your profile, and match with people based on shared group membership.
Once you’ve matched with someone, you can even go on a virtual date – via video chat.
You can start a video chat just by tapping an icon in chat, and you’ll be able to see the other person’s first name and Dating profile.
It’s possible to report and block anyone at any time.
And you can prevent people from sending photos, links, payments or videos in messages.
Your current Facebook friends won’t be suggested as potential matches, and they won’t be notified that you’ve joined dating.
Your profile, messages and who you like or match with in Dating won’t appear on your News Feed either.
