Facebook, the popular social networking website introduced has recently come up with a dating application that we all might be aware of. This dating app now helps the users explore potential romantic relationships. This is a new feature and it is named as a secret crush.
This feature lets the users select up to nine friends in their account whom they wish to express their interest in. Then if your crush opted into Facebook Dating, then they will receive a notification that says someone is interested in them or have a crush on them. If your crush adds you in their Secret Crush list, then it is a match.
This announcement is made by Facebook at the annual F8 conference held at San Francisco in California on Tuesday. At its annual developer conference on Tuesday, the company provided more details about its nascent dating feature Facebook Dating, which is built directly into the main mobile app. The most interesting development is that Facebook Dating has a “Secret Crush” feature. It lets users list nine of their Facebook friends on whom they are secretly crushing. If you’re both enrolled in Facebook Dating and you both list each other as a Secret Crush, you’ll get a notification. Otherwise, the crush will remain secret.
If your crush isn’t on the Facebook dating app, or if your crush doesn’t create a secret crush list or just add you in their list, then your secret crush will not even know that you added their name in the list.
Facebook is also emphasizing its real-world relevance by integrating groups and events into its dating feature. It hopes that people will opt into displaying their profile to users that they are likely to come across in real life already.
