Facebook Is Testing a Tinder-Like Feature on Messenger

Facebook Is Testing a Tinder-Like Feature on Messenger

What are your thoughts regarding this new Tinder-like Facebook dating feature? It will greeted you with a message saying this people want to meet up with you this week with a proper link underneath the message.

The app said that Dubé's response would be kept private unless he and the friend both indicated that they wanted to meetup, otherwise he could click "No Thanks", and nothing else would happen.

Ultimately, Facebook is better with friends and even if the connection suggestions that Facebook comes up with are already stellar, it's good to see some of the thinking that's being done behind the scenes in terms of common interests.

Not content with stealing Snapchat features for Messenger and Instagram, Facebook is about to swipe right on Tinder and help you find your next hook up or plan your next guys weekend.

Do you think a dedicated meet-up tool integrated into Facebook would be useful?

Or you know, you can just text them to ask. Do let us know if this feature is appearing on your Facebook Messenger app too. Perhaps the company is simply experimenting with new ways to encourage people to meet up with their friends in real life. The social networking giant has confirmed that it is, in fact, testing a new Facebook feature to make it easier for users to connect. The basic difference between Tinder and this new Facebook feature is that users get a notification about people who are already friends on Facebook. It seems that this feature is still in its beta mode which is being tested in various countries by randomly picking the users. All of us have a handful of people on Facebook we have spoken a few times with, but you don't really hang out with them. Previously, the most prominent way Facebook orients you with potential new friends was by showing you your mutual friends.

Just like with Tinder, you only get connected if both parties are interested in the service.
