Earlier this year, Facebook confirmed that the world's largest social network receives dating features. It was recently introduced as a test in Colombia and the company is now expanding this test to two more markets. The dating feature takes up many aspects of Facebook to encourage users to a public meeting. It is very different from the swiping models used in popular dating apps like Tinder.
Facebook dating has been extended to users in Canada and Thailand. Also, some new features have been added based on feedback from users in Colombia. Users can now temporarily pause games, as well as get a chance to "look" at potential matches they've previously declined.
What Facebook has not yet announced is the number of registered people to try the dating function in Colombia. Nathan Sharp, the product manager, said the first reaction was "overwhelmingly positive".
Facebook obviously still tests the water with the dating function. Whether or not the feature will be shared with all users worldwide depends on the response it receives in those markets. It is too early to say if and when this will happen.
