Facebook dating platform
“We have designed this with privacy and safety in mind from the beginning.
Your friends aren’t going to see your profile, and you’re only going to be suggested to people who are not your friends.” Facebook product chief Chris Cox took the stage after Zuckerberg to shed more light on the new dating features and to give the audience a tour of the design.

From there, their dating profile will be shared with other people going to the event who are also using the dating service.
They will be able to browse through those users and start a conversation in a private messaging inbox that isn't connected to the Messenger or Whats App apps.
By providing a range of services in one place, the company becomes even more indispensable in people's lives.
We've designed this with privacy and safety in mind from the beginning," Zuckerberg said during a keynote speech. The dating feature is set to roll out later this year.
Cox also mentioned a feature called “unlocking,” which will let any user of Facebook’s dating platform make his or her profile visible to other attendees of events or members of groups.
From there, messaging takes place in distinct chat threads separate from Facebook Messenger.
Users can set up a dating profile with their first name, which the company said won't be visible to friends and will not appear in News Feeds.
The feature is opt-in and users will not be matched with people they are already friends with, according to Facebook.
