The social network says it's going to start testing Dating later this year, and that it's not going to use information from the feature to target ads.
The Dating announcement comes at a strange time for Facebook.
"Unlike shopping for a bank or a refrigerator, in the case of online dating, the refrigerator has to like you back," Gilman said.
"There is a different level of exposure to disappointment and that's captured in the poor overall scores."Once considered taboo, online dating is now a socially accepted and booming multibillion dollar business that continues to grow.
It's easy to dismiss Dating as Facebook copying Tinder, just like it ripped Instagram Stories from Snapchat.
But the reality is even Facebook doesn’t know yet how it will be widely used, if at all.
It’s hard not to immediately notice that Dating looks eerily similar to predominant existing dating apps, like Tinder, Hinge, and Bumble.

It really is a consumer issue worthy of our attention." said Margot Gilman, money editor for Consumer Reports.Dating will also have a dedicated inbox that, unlike Messenger, does not allow you to send photos or links.
