Facebook is testing its very own dating app

Facebook has begun internally testing its dating feature

A feature called "unlocking" will let any user of Facebook's dating platform make his or her profile visible to other attendees of events or members of groups.

Facebook is reportedly aiming to cash in on the £11billion lonely hearts industry with a dating app to rival the likes of Tinder.

The screenshots provide a new insight into how Facebook is planning to dip its toe into the world of dating, as well as the precautions it is taking to prevent abuse among its workforce. "This is not meant for dating your co-workers", read a screenshot.

10K Druze protest Israel 'Jewish state' law
But Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who pushed for the legislation, has repeatedly refused any suggestion to amend the law. The law focuses nearly exclusively on enshrining Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people.

Facebook employees in the company's offices in Mountain View, California, who opted into the internal testing programme were sent links to sign up to the app last week.

After that there are two questions on gender and sexual preferences, "What's your gender?" Of course, this is just a test, and that could change before the official launch.

Facebook had announced the dating product - which will not be a standalone dating app - during its F8 developer conference in the U.S. in May. It'll need to prove itself out to top Tinder, now the most popular dating app going. The firm stated that it was to help build long term relationships and not just mere hookups.

For this reason, future studies will look at long-term survival and maturation of the tissues as well as gas exchange capability. The lungs were reportedly cleaned using sugar and detergent, which left a "scaffolding" from which the scientists could work.

"We have designed this with privacy and safety in mind from the beginning".

For those of you waiting to try and find love through your social network, the Facebook dating app is now being tested internally inside the company, according to app researcher Jane Manchun Wong. Also, you'll be able to choose if you want the friends of your friends to see you as well.
