Facebook Dating: ‘Secret Crush’ Feature Will Help You Get Out Of Friendzone

Adding nine people to the crush list does justify the real meaning of the crush?

Facebook Dating Secret Crush

Facebook is trying to mix the modern dating trend with its old days of hot-or-not websites by introducing a new feature called 'Secret Crush.’ The company announced at its F8 developer conference 2019 that it is adding the more features to its Facebook Dating that will help the user to become more than just a friend.

With the addition of ‘Secret Crush’, Facebook also announced that it is expanding Facebook Dating in 14 more countries, closing the total number of countries to 19. The launch date for the U.S. region is still yet to be decided, but it is expected that Facebook Dating will launch later this year in the U.S.

Facebook Dating : Secret Crush

Facebook Dating was initially launched in 2018 and the company chose Columbia as its launching pad. The new announcement will bring Facebook’s online dating service in Singapore, Peru, Malaysia, Philippines, Laos, Brazil, Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador, Uruguay, Guyana, Vietnam, Ecuador, and Suriname.

In an interview with Techcrunch Charmaine Hung, Facebook Dating product manager said,

Now coming to Secret Crush Feature, users can create a list of up to nine friends they like. If anyone opts for Facebook Dating, your friends from the crush list will get a notification. And if you are lucky enough to be on their crush list too then both of you will be notified.

Matched users can send each other text-only message based on something mentioned in their profile that will drop into a special dating inbox. The rest is up to the efforts of both users. To prevent the spamming by the users, Facebook has put some restrictions that will allow exchanging only one user per day after reaching the limit of nine people.

Currently, Facebook Dating service is available within the Facebook App and it is totally free to use and will compete with other dating apps like Tinder, Bumble and many more. Users aged 18 years or above can use this service to date a friend. 

After exposing the data of the users, Facebook has lost respect in the eyes of the users and its user-friendly image has been demolished. If the new ‘Secret Crush’ feature can bring two friends closer then it could make some users happy.
