The Facebook Inc has recently launched the Facebook Dating, a matchmaking application in the United States of the America.

According to reports, the social media giant already offers the application in Brazil, Canada and 17 other countries.

The company has said the profiles on Facebook Dating application will be separate from the main Facebook profiles, an option the users will be able to turn on within their own account but will have to create a separate dating profile.

The application will match the users with potential partners based on preferences, interests and other things they do on Facebook to find a perfect match.

Furthermore, the users can decide who gets to see their dating profile but their dating activity will not appear on their profile or news feed.

The users will be able to ‘like’ the profile and write comments if they are interested in someone Facebook suggests. However, the users will not be able to see some’s profile in the dating feature unless they are opted in to get matched, too.

The company has also promised that the users will be able link Instagram, and even add Facebook and Instagram Stories in the near future.

Facebook said in a statement that this this ‘lets you be authentic in a way that a typical dating profile can’t” and “helps you get to know someone before and after you match.’
