Dating for different sets of people has always been a problem. Most people work long hours and for that reason, cannot go out a lot and do not tend to meet people often. Others may be socially awkward and as such, avoid social situations. Of course they won’t meet people too.
There are definitely other sets of people who for one reason or another do not meet people a lot.
These sets of people often resort to social media to get that opportunity of coming in contact with someone they could remotely consider dating. They are in luck seeing as there are numerous dating platforms out there. Facebook Dating is one of such platforms.
Facebook Dating is a specialized dating service incorporated into the Facebook website. It is not a stand alone platform, neither is it a downloadable app. It is available for use by registered Facebook users in specific regions. This is because the service is only available in a number of locations.
What most people would find amazing is the fact that Facebook has chosen to allow its users enjoy the dating service for free. With that, Facebook charges nothing for use of the dating service. There are no premium plans which would allow people pay to access more features. On Facebook Dating, everyone enjoys all the features at no cost. Everyone is a premium user.
How Facebook Dating Works
For starters, like every other dating platform, after opting in to use Facebook Dating, you must create a dating profile which may be totally independent of your Facebook profile. You could use information from your main profile on your dating profile though. This would make the profile set up process easier.
Your profile will contain information such as age, a photo, height, gender, preferences, interests, etc. An algorithm which takes advantage of profile information, matches you with a user you’re most likely to hit it off with.
In a situation where you try out Facebook Dating and don’t find it your thing, you could always turn it off. You can always turn it back on if you have a change of heart.
How to Use Facebook Dating
To get started with Facebook Dating, here is what you need to do;
- Log on to your Facebook account.
- Click on your profile.
- At the top of your profile page, you will notice a heart icon. That’s the Facebook Dating icon. Click on it to proceed.
- The next pages will have to do with personal information provision. Enter all information as requested and proceed.
Once done with profile set up, you’re pretty much good to start dating.
