Facebook to unveil dating feature

Facebook to unveil dating feature

"We are all here because we are optimistic about the future", said Zuckerberg.

In a letter, the chairman of the United Kingdom committee investigating these issues, Damian Collins, said the last person Facebook sent to testify, its chief technology officer, didn't adequately answer its questions.

Match cratered 22.1% to to close at 36.71 on the stock market today after the social media giant disclosed its move into online dating. "Then she can browse people who are there..."

He said 200 million Facebook users identify as single, and stressed that the feature would be designed "for building long-term relationships, not just hookups". Only people who use the dating service will be able to see other parties' profiles.

IAC, Match Group's parent company, dropped about 12 percent. He said he sees Groups as essential to Facebook's vision and wants to empower Group leaders with tools to more effectively lead their communities.

This story is developing. He announced new software features including 3D filters for Messenger and Instagram posts.

Playing matchmaker shines a further light on the amount of personal user data Facebook has access to.

Despite reports that Koum left over concerns about how the company handles private data, Zuckerberg thanked Koum and called him "a tireless advocate for privacy and encryption".

"Fixing" Facebook will take three years, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in an interview with Wired. She also previewed the new group calling feature and stickers. He emphasized the investments Facebook has made to stop the sharing of fake information on its website, such as artificial intelligence tools and 20,000 human moderators to flag and block fake news content and its disseminators. An early example is Sephora, which has new makeup AR overlays so that users can, say, try on blue eye shadow without leaving the house.

Last week, Facebook chief technical officer Mike Schroepfer participated in United Kingdom hearings about the Cambridge Analytica scandal.




"I think there is concern, and it's clear that our priorities are making sure that people's data is secure", Zuckerberg told Wired.

Ime Archibong, Facebook's head of platform, said the process will be slightly stricter going forward. The dating feature is set to roll out later this year.

"Our goal here isn't to be hard", said Archibong. "I took Wyclef Jean to Jupiter and went home with Hodor".

Zuckerberg noted that 200 million people on Facebook are listed as single, and that 1 in 3 marriages in the USA start online. Zuckerberg said everyone in the audience would receive a free Oculus Go.

Facebook's massive developer conference kicked off Tuesday, but the event's website lagged behind.

Zuckerberg is also likely to talk up new stuff, including AR and virtual reality.

The company is also continuing to expand its augmented reality offerings, like 3D photos.

Please note that the Facebook Clear History isn't available at the moment.

Zuckerberg even found time to make a joke about his recent congressional testimony on the data leak. You may have to sign back in to every website, and you may have to reconfigure things. The massive hack prompted new questions about privacy levels on the platform, incited a #DeleteFacebook movement by some users and sent Zuckerberg to the Capitol to testify for hours in front of members of Congress. You will be able to build an online profile for others to look at and yes, your friends can't look at it. Some of my friends actually did this! "Let's not do this again anytime soon".
