Online Dating! one of the most social media concepts nowadays, and Tinder, Haven and many others received¬†a good response in terms of users and success stories. Facebook is launching a new app which is specially made for Dating, where you can make your own profile which is not visible to your friends and who’ve also single ūüėČ and looking for love.

As Facebook launched FaceDate news, Tinder’s share fall by 22% on the same day. Maybe investors know that Facebook will not commit the same mistake as Cambridge analytica again and keep data private by investing more in privacy and security. Facebook will match information with one another, and FaceDate has it’s own inbox, so don’t worry messenger and facedate is separate¬†from each other.
