Will dating feature make Facebook a major threat to data privacy?

Despite the proximity of the two events, Facebook's entrance into the digital-courtship space has already affected the shares of its would-be rival, Match, which owns the popular dating apps Tinder and OkCupid. Experts have stated that it is not surprising that Facebook is releasing a dating app.

First, the app seems to take a lot of functions from many other already existing dating services.

In a straw poll, just 12 per cent of nearly 60 of my Twitter followers said they would use Facebook's dating service.

According to Facebook, "potential matches will be recommended based on dating preferences, things in common, and mutual friends".

On stage in San Jose, Zuckerberg assured the audience that the feature has been developed "with privacy and safety in mind from the beginning" and is expected to launch "soon".

"Your friends aren't going to see your profile, and you're only going to be suggested to people who are not your friends".

Zuckerberg says if Facebook is focused on helping people build meaningful relationships, "then this is perhaps the most meaningful of all".

Paris Hilton's sex tape
But Hilton, who in her biography said she didn't remember filming the tape and didn't know it existed, was left traumatised. However, when people think of Paris Hilton chances are, it's not her reality-TV career that pops into their minds.

Despite everything, there were more than 2.2 billion monthly active Facebook users for Q1 2018.

"This is going to be for building real, long-term relationships, not just hook-ups", Zuckerberg said in presenting the new feature, noting that one in three marriages in the United States start online - and that some 200 million Facebook users identify as being single.

Troy Hunt: Well, of course, that intuitive nature of Facebook is that it has so much data about you it is able to put things in front of you that you would be more interested in. "Security isn't a problem than you ever fully solve", Zuckerberg said. "This is an arms race; we are going to be working to stay ahead of our adversaries forever". The firm's flagship product - Tinder - grew US subscriptions by 23-percent across all platforms over the final quarter of 2017, with the service performing well across all platforms, meaning a purely app-based challenge from Facebook is likely to be "very difficult" to mount, SimilarWeb says.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday announced a new privacy control called "Clear History".

Moreover, the company announced the global launch of Oculus Go will be available on e-commerce platform Amazon, also company uses its Camera Effects Platform to AR into the Messenger service.

The prototype was built around local, in-person events, allowing people to browse other attendees and send them messages. As a whole, Americans are more tolerant of hate speech than others in the world; however, this does not and should not permit Facebook to turn a blind eye to the copious amounts of hate speech the Black community, and other vulnerable communities experience on Facebook.
