Users only need to use an existing Facebook account, although Facebook also offers options for users to use a different account. After that, users will be treated to a list of other users who have joined this program.
Then, the other user’s profile will be displayed, similar to how the Tinder application works. But users do not need to wait to get the appropriate pair, because they can immediately send messages or tap the Like button.
In addition, Facebook also announced a list of features to make its online dating services more secure. One of these features allows users to share detailed information from flings with friends such as location directly via Messenger.
