Zuckerberg said that Facebook should be in the business of bringing people together in new ways. Mr Zuckerberg reiterated the company’s plans to restrict “data that developers will be able to request from people,” but said the social network would likely fail again. “This is hard stuff. We will make mistakes and they will have consequences and we will need to fix them.” The new dating service would sit inside the main Facebook app.
„I want to be clear that we’ve designed this with privacy and safety in mind from the beginning. Your friends aren’t going to see your profile,” Zuckerberg said. The dating service designed for the 200 million Facebook users who described themselves as single. It would show which single people were attending events near the user. Daters could trade text-based messages, but not photographs, and would only be known by their first name. Zuckerberg said the dating feature was set to launch “soon”Facebook also revealed plans to roll out a new tool called Clear History that would let users delete website browsing history collected by the social network, similar to deleting cookies from a web browser. Shares of Match Group, the owner of popular dating app Tinder, fell as much as 23 per cent after the news.
