Facebook to unveil dating feature

Taking on a more somber and forceful tone than in previous years, Zuckerberg on Tuesday tried to bolster Facebook's commitment to privacy and building community. He also announced updates to Messenger. "The hard part was figuring out a way to move forward on everything else we need to do, too". "What I learned this year is we have to take a broader view of our responsibility".

Like an old flame wrecking a first date, Facebook Inc burst in on the matchmaking scene on Tuesday and sent investors in rival apps on a panicked rush for the door. That could potentially allow it to match people more effectively than rival sites with less data at their fingertips. "Your friends aren't going to see this". (IAC) spun off Match Group in 2015 and retains an 80% stake.

Match has upped investments in older online dating websites, expanded Tinder globally, and started new projects to increase advertising revenue. The video can be minimized so that users can chat while still liking photos and swiping through their feed.

Facebook will still provide its partner apps and websites with "aggregated analytics", but any information stored will be anonymised, and crucially it won't be linked to a users' account.

The Spotify and Go Pro apps have gained the ability to share content directly to Instagram Stories, and other apps will follow.

A translation tool is being added to Facebook's Marketplace - the platform's area to buy and sell items - created to enable users to communicate in different languages and maintain understanding.

"I just want to take a moment to thank January he has been a tireless advocate for privacy and encryption", Zuckerberg at the start of his keynote. "You have to make sure that they're executing well and bring in the leadership and train them". It could be that Facebook has something brand new in mind.

We don't know much about the features just yet.

Following the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Facebook has tightened control of information collected through apps.

This wasn't a shock at all because the WWE had been pushing Wyatt and Hardy, so not putting the belts on them would have been bad. Another good night for the WWE's monster as he won the biggest ever Royal Rumble , throwing Big Cass over last to triumph.

It is unclear if Facebook will charge users for its dating feature.

"Our goal here isn't to be hard", said Archibong. "If we don't work on this, the world isn't moving in this direction by itself", he said.

Facebook is ready to launch a portable headset that it's counting on to transform the geeky realm of virtual reality into a mass phenomenon.

However, it is also expected that the conference will discuss some topics which range in the realm of VR hardware used with Oculus. Facebook also might unveil additional changes. The new features are rolling out this month. The images will be available in the main Facebook app in the summer.

Zuckerberg testified before Congress last month for about 10 hours over two days.

Interestingly, because Facebook's browsing data plugins, websites and apps can collect data on internet users who aren't signed up to Facebook, these users will have no way of turning this kind of data collection off. Some of my friends actually did this!

"Let's not do that again soon", he said.

It's been six weeks since the Cambridge Analytica scandal broke, revealing that the political data-mining firm inappropriately accessed the information of as many as 87 million Facebook users.
