Facebook Dating in testing mode with Five Gender Choices

Leading social media website Facebook has started testing its dating project internally with employees which could give tough competition for Bumble and other dating apps.

A screenshot from sources read as “This product is for US Facebook employees who have opted-in to dogfooding Facebook’s new dating product. “The purpose for this dogfooding is to test the end-to-end product experience for bugs and confusing UI (user interface). This is not meant for dating your co-workers,"

Those who participate can activate the feature where only others who’ve turned on the feature like yourself can see you. More importantly, users can now choose from five different genders – woman, trans woman, man, trans man and non-binary people.  Only members who are the age of 18 or over can use the Facebook Dating.

Further added "Dogfooding this product is completely voluntary and has no impact on your employment," Facebook had announced the dating product — which will not be a standalone dating app — during its F8 developer conference in the US in May.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said " This is going to be for building real, long-term relationships and not just for hookups,. We have designed this with privacy and safety in mind from the beginning. Your friends aren’t going to see your profile, and you’re only going to be suggested to people who are not your friends"
