The Pros and Cons of Facebook Dating


Social media has changed the dating game in some fundamental ways, and now it’s about to do it again with Facebook Dating, which launched on June 8, 2018. While this new service differs from popular apps like Tinder and Bumble in several important ways, it will probably be just as disruptive to the dating world as any of those apps have been. If you’re thinking about joining Facebook Dating, or if you know somebody who is, here are some of the pros and cons to help you decide whether it’s right for you.


It is a dating app that makes it easy to meet new people in your community. Since most people now spend a good portion of their day on Facebook, there is less pressure when using it for dating purposes. You can see who has liked you first rather than having to send out that awkward text message. It can be fun to search for friends or old flames you have lost touch with, but you might want to be careful about friending someone you know if you plan on using Facebook for dating purposes only. If you do use Facebook for hookups, make sure not to include details about your job or where you live until after meeting up in person.


The most notable disadvantage is that Facebook dating is only available in certain areas. In order to use it, you have to be located in a region where it’s available. The company hasn’t said when or if they’ll expand their services, so users have no way of knowing whether or not they can use Facebook hookups soon. Additionally, the service is completely free for users, which means that users run some risks about safety if using it.

How It Works

Facebook is a very popular social network with over 2 billion users. People use Facebook to stay in touch with their friends, post photos, find local events, share news articles and more. Facebook can be a great way to meet new people but it’s important that you consider potential safety issues before using Facebook to connect with people you don’t know. If you’re considering using Facebook to connect with someone that you’ve met on an online dating site or from a chat room, make sure that you take some time to read through these safety tips before contacting them

Next Steps

Before you post an update, it’s important to consider your privacy settings. If you’ve already updated your relationship status on Facebook to In a Relationship, you may want to change it so that all updates are visible only to friends. This way, any potential dates will have to send you a friend request before they can see if you’re active on Facebook’s dating feature. Once that friend request is accepted, users can browse for profiles or suggest dates for their single friends who use Facebook.
