Facebook to offer dating service for first time

0 ratings | 18 views
Facebook Inc plans to add a dating service, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said on Tuesday (MAy 01), marking the first time the world's largest social media network has actively tried to help people form romantic relationships. Zuckerberg told software developers at Facebook's annual F8 conference that a dating service would be a natural fit for a company that specializes in connecting people online. The feature would be for finding long-term relationships, "not just hook-ups," he said. The dating service is being built with privacy in mind, so that friends will not be able to see a person's dating profile, Zuckerberg said. Concerns about Facebook's handling of privacy have grown since the social network's admission in March that the data of millions of users was wrongly harvested by political consultancy Cambridge Analytica. Zuckerberg also said Facebook was building a new privacy control called "clear history" to allow users to delete browsing history. He compared the new tool to the option of clearing cookies in a browser, which he said can make parts of the user experience worse as users may have to reconfigure things. Facebook said it will take a few months to build the update, adding the company will work with privacy advocates, academics, policymakers and regulators to get their input on the new approach.
