Facebook is a popular social networking site for young and old alike. It's completely free to join and to use. Simply register, create a personal profile and add your friends and contacts.
Facebook is an extremely popular social networking site whose membership runs into the millions. Initially, the site was just a social networking tool for the use of students at Harvard. Its popularity spread, and by the end of 2004, Facebook was used by colleges all over the United States.
Today, Facebook enjoys international popularity, among the young and not so young. As more and more people begin to expand their social networks through Facebook, the site's popularity stands only to grow.
Can Facebook be Used for Dating?
As well as being able to meet other singles directly through Facebook, there's also a huge range of dating apps that you can use there once you've joined. These range from general purpose dating apps like Zoosk to specialized apps like Hinge that will try to match you by looking at your circle of friends. While Facebook is in itself free, some of the apps charge a fee for some of their services.
Your Personal Connections
Facebook already has lots of your personal information, photos and your likes and dislikes that it gathers through your activity there. It knows about your friends, and even your friends of friends - and even who you're likely to connect with. This puts it at an advantage to other dating sites who rely on us providing all of that information to them again.
As long as you explicitly authorize them, the dating apps can tap into this gold mine of information, and find people you're more likely to share common interests with.
The advantage to anyone using Facebook dating apps is that it is all going on behind the scenes. You don't have to type your personal story into yet another website and upload your pictures over and over. It's all done in one place so you know where everything is.
