Facebook extends dating ability to Thailand and Canada


Moving its design for popular dating applications such as Tinder and Bumble, Facebook announced the expansion of its feature test in two new countries – Canada and Thailand.

It is known that Facebook has developed a dating application using the vast amount of user data the platform can access. The figures are confirmed by the fact that the California-based company had about 2.27 billion active users in the third quarter of 2018, a study by Statista revealed.

The Facebook Dating test started for the first time in Colombia in September, according to the Economics Times. The feature included integrating users with groups and events into the social networking platform with the idea of ‚Äč‚Äčencouraging people to move real-world interactions from virtual territory.

And, quoting a report by The Verge, Article ET says, there is a new feature at the moment. This feature is called "Second Look" and allows users to review a previous decision. One can also pause the match in case they are not looking anymore until today.

Facebook hopes to expand its users base with the new dating feature. Testing is now available to users aged 18 and above, at no cost and without ads or high quality features, the report adds.
