Facebook Swipes Right

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Facebook is launching its dating service in 32 European countries, after an 8-month delay. This is a matchmaking feature in the social network that lets singles find matches, filtered by all manner of personal features such as age, height, religious belief, etc.

Facebook Dating launched last year in the U.S. but the European Union has strict rules about sharing private data and it was not convinced Facebook was honoring them when Facebook tried to launch the dating service in February. Facebook jumped through the requisite hoops, promising they would not use data that they collect from this service, and now Europeans can find themselves some dates on Facebook too.
