Facebook wants to regain its popularity among the youngest users, who are increasingly turning to other social networking sites - for example, Snapchata. By creating online dating sites, FB wants to encourage users to spend more time on the site.
Mark Zuckerberg at the conference on the development of the F8 announced that Facebook plans to launch its own dating site.
Facebook wants to launch a new service to help users find a partner. This was announced on Tuesday by the founder and CEO of Mark Zuckerberg at a conference on the development of the F8.

Zuckerberg said that the service will be developed for users who are looking for a long-term relationship.
According to Zuckerberg, the company will pay special attention to the protection of private data within this service. The service will be launched in the near future, but the founder did not specify a specific date.
The announcement of this innovation had a negative impact on the shares of companies operating in the field of online dating. For example, the shares of Match Group, which owns the popular dating application for Tinder, have been shaken dramatically, Reuters reports.
According to analyst James Cordwell of Atlantic Equities, the new service can lead to an increase in the time that people spend on Facebook, and at the same time, it represents a "big problem" for competitors such as Match Group.

This year, Facebook was criticized for reporting that Cambridge Analytica illegally received information about tens of millions of users of its network and used it, in particular, to develop software tools aimed at supporting the election campaign of Donald Trump.
Zuckerberg said that he is working on a new tool to give users more control over some data. For example, users can delete lists of visited pages.
However, according to Zuckerberg, the development of the new tool will take several months, reports DPA.

What will the new service look like? A heart shaped icon appears in the upper right corner of the Facebook application. After clicking on it you will be redirected to your dating profile. Potential partners will be chosen on the basis of established preferences, mutual interests and common friends.
