If you're looking for love, Facebook Dating is on the way

Love and like

Think of dating apps, and the likes of Tinder, Grindr and Match.com spring to mind, and now Facebook is looking to take itself a slice of the action. We first heard about Facebook Dating at the social network's F8 conference back in May, and now more details are coming out.

Currently undergoing internal testing with employees, Facebook Dating is looking to be a feature of Facebook rather than a standalone app. Leaked images now give us an idea of what to expect from it -- but there'll be no swiping right.

Currently in the "pre-launch" stage, images of Facebook Dating have been shared on Twitter by researcher Jane Manchun Wong. While it has not been possible to test out the feature -- it's only available to Facebook employees at the moment -- the leak shows that Facebook Dating lets people specify the type of person they are looking to meet, and also suggests "conversation starters" to help get over nervous hurdles.

TechCrunch reports that Facebook plans on placing limits on the number of people users can express an interest in, and will enable would-be daters to communicate with either other via WhatsApp or Messenger. There's no hint at the moment about when Facebook Dating could get a public launch, and it's entirely possible that it wont make it beyond the internal testing phase.

    There no love for Facebook users - only lies, envy and emoji.

    Facebook for dating? Wow, now I have to get a good reserve of popcorn for the scandals that will come out of it. LOL

    Considering it's Facebook, it will probably list all the other people they've hooked up with previously as well...

      I was just thinking how this'll become another version of 'The Dirty.''Mick posted that Colleen gave him gonorrhea. Collen replied it's all fake news, it was the Russians.'

    It will, no doubt, make it much easier for Trump and Vlad to get together while apart!

    I tried computer dating once. It didn't work out. I was dumped for an Altair 8800.
