In our society, it is not just well seen to use this type of dating services, although in reality There are many millions of people who use them.
The social network knows that not all users like to say that they make use of applications to flirt, so We will have to create the Facebook Dating profile through a very simple process and apart, so there are no changes in our traditional Facebook profile.
How Facebook Dating works
Since Facebook generally knows our real age, those users over 18 years They will be given the option to sign up for the Facebook Dating service, which for now will be free for all users.
The creation of the profile in this service is very fast since we can use the photos uploaded to Facebook or a new one, besides being able to export the biography.
We may think that some friends we have on Facebook, are of the opposite sex or the same and They have very similar tastes to ours, so it will be possible to recommend us to people around us.
However, Facebook has clarified that never recommend us to people who are among our friends, unless we or they introduce us to their Secret crush, which is a list in which we add the people we like and seek to be more than friends.
The main people we recommend connecting with are with friends of friends, that is to say, people who are not in our immediate surroundings, but they are not unknown either since probably our friend will already have spoken to us of that person in some circumstance.
