Last year at its annual developers' conference F8 2018, Facebook announced its dating service - Facebook Dating. While making the announcement last year Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the service would change the way people date. And now, nearly year and a half later, Facebook has finally rolled out the service in the US taking the total number of countries where the service is available to 20.
Now the service, which is called Facebook Dating, is officially here but is currently only restricted to the US and 19 other countries. These countries are Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Columbia, Ecuador, Guyana, Laos, Malaysia, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, the Philippines, Singapore, Suriname, Thailand, Uruguay, and Vietnam. European users will be getting this feature by early 2020.
In addition to that, Facebook is rolling out its Secret Crush feature, which it announced at F8 2019 earlier this year, to Facebook Dating. This means that the users of this service will be able to explore romantic relationships within their circle of friends.
