Facebook dating application to allow users to choose from 5 different genres

The social networking giant is internally testing the service with Facebook employees, according to a Twitter user who apparently leaked screenshots of the application.

It is reported that Facebook aims to take advantage of the lone hearts industry of £ 11 billion with a dating application to rival the likes of Tinder.

The social networking giant is internally testing the service with Facebook employees, according to a Twitter user who apparently leaked screenshots of the application in Twitter.

The screenshots show that & # 39; Facebook Dating & # 39; would offer users a choice of five genders: woman, trans woman, man, trans man and non-binary people.

The application also seems to allow users to avoid having their current Facebook friends see their profile or just match people with whom they have friends in common.

Dating apps like Bumble already ask users to log in with their Facebook accounts to detect common friends and avoid making embarrassing connections with family or close friends.

Facebook employees at the company's offices in Mountain View, California, who opted for the internal testing program, sent links to sign up for the application last week.

They were instructed to log in and share information & # 39; fictitious & # 39; to test the application and find technical failures, a process called & # 39; dogfooding & # 39 ;, before its release.

However, they were warned that the application is not designed to allow relationships in the office.

"The purpose of this dogfooding is to test the product experience from start to finish to detect errors and a confusing user interface," states the status of terms and conditions.

& # 39; This is not to go out with your coworkers & # 39;.

Service users can chat in private conversations, but sending images is not allowed.

In an attempt to protect the privacy of users, only information that is public will be shared with coincidences.
