Facebook's annual F8 developer event kicked off today, and the company had a number of pretty big announcements.
The dating platform will be an opt-in service available to Facebook's 2.2 billion monthly active users and it will allow them to browse possible dates based on factors including interests, mutual friends and groups.
Before dating, the social networking behemoth has expanded into numerous other features pioneered by other tech companies, ranging from job postings to payments and online food delivery.
The smattering of new features have brought confusion to Facebook users as well, but not at the expense of enthusiasm.
And, of course, in doing so it also maintains its dominance over competitors, whether established or potential. Can Facebook connect people in a warm and genuine manner, instead of a fake, my-life-is-perfect way? While Facebook has already started this approach, devoting more resources to this effort would allow for a quicker and more intelligent sweep of bad content.
That stipulation is a nod to Facebook's troubles over privacy in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, in which the political consulting firm was able to harvest data from Facebook users' friends. Shares of IAC/InterActiveCorp, the majority owner of Match, also fell 11%. It wants to be everything all at once - a networking site, a messaging platform, an e-commerce platform, a news service.and now, a dating app. "But, what I can assure you is that we're hard at work making sure that people don't misuse this platform so you can all keep building things that people love". Facebook will provide your silent stalker a chance to know that you are "looking for someone", as will your distant relative whose friendship request you have been ignoring so far.

"Mr. Zuckerberg, would you be comfortable sharing with us the name of the hotel you stayed in last night?"
Other details about the service are unclear.
Service of Dating is a natural application for the company. That is the kind of power Facebook has when the social media titan steps into the ring and unleashes a new "Dating" feature that have the parent company of Tinder quite skittish. He stated that it is unclear about what Facebook plans to do in order to manage user privacy for this dating app. Experts have stated that it is not surprising that Facebook is releasing a dating app. Mark Zuckerberg announced that he would not compete with Tinder.
Data privacy is a vulnerable topic for the company, which is suffering from scandals involving the leak of personal data in favor of political consultant Cambridge Analytica, dissemination of false information through the network, linked to Russia's intervention before the USA presidential election of 2016. But Facebook continues to look for new ways to expand.
"We're flattered that Facebook is coming into our space", Ginsberg said.
It's understandable for Match to be a little sore at Facebook's move.

Even more acidic is the reply from IAC chief Joey Levin: "Come on in".
During his testimony on Capitol Hill last month, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg batted down accusations that the giant social network has a liberal bent.
Facebook is still receiving criticism over its practices of collecting user data, even when users are logged out of Facebook.
The goal of the new dating app is clearly defined. Two great things about the feature is that it promises to protect your privacy, and it will not suggest your friends to date.
