Recently Facebook has rolled out its new Facebook dating App in United States. This made the US 2oth country to get the dating feature.
On the first launch of this feature in Columbia, the product manager of the dating feature Nathan Sharp said”More than 200 million people have listed themselves as single in their relationship status on Facebook,”
“We view this as an incredible opportunity to continue helping people build relationships in meaningful ways on Facebook,” he added.
However, as per Paul Keable, certain aspects of this feature may allow cheating in this app. Paul Keable is the chief Strategy officer at Ashley Madison. The Ashley Madison is a website which has a tagline “Life is short. Have an Affair”. He believes Facebook, Tiner, Bumble etc are the competition of his website.
The app lets you cheat as the app duplicates the facebook profile but it would remove your existing relationship status. This would let the users to join it easily without knowledge of their partners.
Another thing that he noticed in the app is that Facebook dating app would not match you with your facebook friends. So, the possibility of getting caught by your partner is less in this case.
Although, Facebook has done it to keep the privacy of the users. The users can easily opt for the dating feature into the regular facebook mobile app.
