The way Facebook will connect people is by asking users to “unlock” groups or events on Facebook, which will allow users to see other “daters” who unlocked the same event or group.
The idea, of course, being that you’ll have something in common with the people you can suddenly match with.
Facebook doesn’t plan to make this a separate app, according to a company spokesperson.
The site was quickly forwarded to several campus group list-servers, but was shut down a few days later by the Harvard administration.
Zuckerberg faced expulsion and was charged by the administration with breach of security, violating copyrights, and violating individual privacy. Zuckerberg expanded on this initial project that semester by creating a social study tool ahead of an art history final exam.
Users who are single and interested in dating can set up a dating profile within their existing Facebook account.
It won’t be visible to friends or family, or show up in News Feed, and will only appear for other people using the dating service.
It actually makes a lot of sense, and Chief Product Officer Chris Cox even joked that he thought Facebook would have launched dating more than a decade ago.
