Facebook Dating is an opt-in service where users create a separate profile and interact with others away from their main social. Don't miss a thing by getting the day's biggest stories sent direct to your inbox.
It also enables users to share Stories from Facebook or Instagram onto their dating profile and includes the 'Secret Crush' tool.
