Grabbing a share of the dating app market is Facebook, which has recently made its ‘Facebook Dating’ feature available in the US to user 18 years old and above.
Here’s how it works. Matches are recommended to you through an analysis of your profile, interests and Facebook activity.
Your dating profile will be separate from your main one, and the app will not connect you with your existing Facebook friends.
Though it is a new service to help users find romance in the digital space, people are having different reactions to it. Here are some of them.
It gets a bit political.

Amanda: Um, I'm engaged, thanks.
Facebook: Not for very much longer...
Gentle reminder: you are alone.
Facebook gets a little bit too involved.
The last resort.
It's everybody's business now.
