Once you start browsing, Facebook will exclude your existing friends from your pool of matches.
Instead, you’ll only see friends of friends or people to whom you don’t have any connection at all.
If you do, you’ll be asked to create a separate dating profile that includes a much more limited amount of personal information about you.
The photos can come from your camera roll, Facebook uploads, or Instagram photos that you’ve cross-posted to Facebook. ) Unlike some other apps, you won’t be able to change your virtual location to browse for matches elsewhere.
As an effort to thwart catfishing attempts, you will also have to input your location, which Facebook will verify through your phone’s GPS. Instead, if you’re visiting a new place, you’ll have to verify your location again within Facebook Dating.
Your messages are limited to text and emoji; there are no photos or videos in Facebook Dating messages.
To accomplish this, Dating uses its own messaging interface, not Facebook Messenger.
