Facebook Dating'S New Features Are Ridiculously Useful & Could Change The Way You Date
Here's where things get really juicy: Were you bummed to find out that your profile won't be shown to your friends? Facebook gets it. In fact, a rep for Facebook told Elite Daily that according to a study commissioned by the social media platform in July, 53% of online daters currently have a crush on someone they know IRL but are too nervous to ask them out. Enter Secret Crush. This feature lets you add up to nine Facebook friends or Instagram followers to your Secret Crush list. Once a person gets added, they'll get a notification that they have a secret admirer. Your name will only be revealed if they happen to have a crush on you, too. Cool, right?
The app was also developed with safety in mind. If you've ever screenshotted a match's profile and texted it to your friend along with the time and location of your date, this feature's for you: When you're out on a date, you can give your match's info and a tracker of your live location to friends of your choosing. (Don't worry, the location tracker can also be turned off.)
