Facebook restricts potential matches to people located less than 100 kilometers away (there will be a different metric-system equivalent when the product rolls out in the US).
Like other dating apps, you can also choose only to match with people who live nearby, have children, share the same religion, or fit into a specific age or height bracket.“We’re trying to connect people that are open to getting to know each other in the future,” says Nathan Sharp, a product manager at Facebook.
You can round out your profile with up to nine total photos or ice-breaker questions provided by Facebook.
Currently, there are 20 questions to choose from, like “What does the perfect day look like? Once your profile is set, Facebook will use a unique algorithm to match you with potential dates, based on factors like things you have in common and mutual friends.
For example, you can choose to match with people who attend the same events or who are a part of the same Facebook groups.
To do so, you’ll need to “unlock” each event or group manually; by default users won’t be able to search for a missed connection unless the other person opts-in to being discovered.
All events and groups are fair game; users will have the ability to unlock that Taylor Swift concert from 2012 and the housewarming party they’re attending next week.
One important note: group and event organizers have no control over whether members or attendees choose to date.
You can also report and block users with the same tools available elsewhere on the social network.
In May, for example, Tinder said it was testing a new feature called Places, which allows users to match with people who like to hang out at the same spots, like bars, restaurants, or clubs.
