Facebook to launch new dating feature


If you're sick of the ~millions~ of dating apps out there...don't worry...there's another one coming!

Facebook has decided that it doesn't just want you to interact with your friends and family, but it also wants to play match-maker.

Mark Zuckerberg announced at the F8 developers conference at the San Jose McEnery Convention Centre in California that his social network is entering the dating game.

He told the audience: "This is going to be for building real, long-term relationships - not just for hook-ups.

"We have designed this with privacy and safety in mind from the beginning. Your friends aren't going to see your profile, and you're only going to be suggested to people who are not your friends."

Ok, sounding good so far...imagine your profile showing up to your friends eeeek!

How does it work? You fill out some preferences and Facebook will use that and your existing data on your profile to find someone out there for you. The site will also try and use your Events folder to match you with people attending similar stuff.

It will also allow you to stalk their Facebook profile, meaning you might want to hide any embarrassing pictures.

So if you're struggling to find love, here's another option for ya!
