Facebook’s new dating product
Facebook recently announced a new dating product called Facebook Date, which is hosted by the social networking site. Though Facebook has long been a social media powerhouse, the dating product does have some limitations, such as only letting you match with people within your friend circle. You can also hide your sexual orientation or preferences from people you know. Some people are skeptical about Facebook’s dating product, and may consider permanently deleting their account instead.
