Also, if you block someone on Dating, that person won't be blocked on Facebook too.

Just a few months after launching Snapchat competitor, Riff, a collaborative video creation app for both iOS and Android users in 2015, Facebook plugged the plug on it.However, the tech giant said that most of the features of the app had been integrated into the main Facebook app and Messenger.

"Facebook is internally testing Facebook Dating", she wrote. The Dating feature won't cost anything and won't show ads, but Facebook might reconsider the monetization status later on.

For those who are curious, it seems that you'll have to wait until Facebook launches the feature, but if online dating is your thing, there are plenty of alternatives out there that could be worth taking a look at for now.

After that there are two questions on gender and sexual preferences, "What's your gender?" Instead of the traditional blue, it uses a soft, rosy red, with purple illustrations - perhaps an attempt to clearly differentiate it from the social network.

Facebook announced the dating product at its F8 developer conference in the U.S. in May.

Williams has been named for the Boeing programme to the ISS - the first test flight scheduled to take place in the middle of 2019. The CST-100 test flight will also include Christopher Ferguson , a former NASA astronaut and current Boeing commercial astronaut.

Facebook has since confirmed that they are testing out the feature but declined to go into further details.

In clearly separating users' dating profiles from their existing friend circles, the company appears to be trying to get ahead of the issue.

"This is going to be for building real, long-term relationships and not just for hookups", Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said during his keynote.

The app, which is now being tested internally by Facebook workers, allows users to specify if they want to match with people with mutual friends and choose from five genders: "trans woman", "woman", "trans man", "man" and "non-binary people".

"We have designed this with privacy and safety in mind from the beginning". Also, you'll be able to choose if you want the friends of your friends to see you as well.
