At its F8 Developer Conference this week, Facebook announced a new ‘Secret Crush’ feature to be added to Facebook Dating.
If you’ve been thirsting over one of your Facebook friends, now’s your chance to let them know – and find out if they feel the same about you. Facebook announced that it’s created a new Secret Crush feature that will let you use Facebook Dating to tell a friend how you feel about them. If the subtle flirting won’t do it, you might just get things going with the new feature.
The way it works is pretty simple. You can choose up to nine friends on Facebook who you’re interested in and they will get a notification that one of their friends has a crush on them. The catch, however, is that they will have to be using Facebook Dating to get the notification.
If they add you to their own list, then you’ll be matched. If they never use Facebook Dating, never add you to their list, or never use the Secret Crush feature, then they will never know. That simple.
Facebook Dating may still be unavailable in the US, but it’s now expanding to 14 new countries – Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam and Suriname; in addition to the existing countries – Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, Canada and Thailand.
The rollout of Facebook Dating, in the US, should take place by the end of 2019.
