Facebook Dating is available for iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Android. The so-called Facebook Tinder can be used directly by the social networking app, without the user having to download an extra app on their mobile phone. It is noteworthy that Dating does not share the activities and updates of the relationship platform in the Facebook feed.

1. Create a profile for Dating
To create a Facebook Dating profile, I need to download the updated version of the Facebook app. Access the side menu to find the relationship app icon, indicated by the heart symbol. From there, the user should complete the profile with photo and features. You can add information such as height, religion, education level, and what you would like to find in a partner.
The app suggests answering some personal questions like "My favorite time of day …" or "My idea of ??a perfect day …" to share your tastes and make the profile more interesting. It is important to remember that the tool is not present in the desktop version, so Dating is only available on mobile.

2. Capriche in profile picture
Dating suggests that you use the same Facebook profile photo, but you can choose a different image from your phone's photo gallery or social network albums. The profile photo is the first image available to those interested, so it is important to select one carefully. Facebook also lets you add 11 more photos to your profile. It is a suggestion that the user use all available space to add attractive and preferably recent photos.
3. Be creative in the message of interest
When a person likes your profile, you have the option to send a reply and start the conversation. Try to be creative from the first message to have a better chance of success. If you need ideas for starting a chat, consider using apps that suggest phrases, topics, and even jokes to make the conversation more relaxed. The Pull Subject Phrases is a free sample app that can be used to bring inspiration.
4. Use Secret Crush function
The Secret Crush feature allows the user to add to a hidden list up to nine Facebook friends who catch his eye. If the interest is reciprocal, the app notifies both people. Dating integrates with Instagram to include followers on the list, increasing dating possibilities. When it's time to add the desired profile, choose the Instagram follower option from the menu that appears next.

5. Check out the crush Instagram Stories
Check out Instagram Stories can be a good option to learn more about crush. Since published content only airs for 24 hours, people tend to be more spontaneous. The feature allows you to follow the day to day of the interested and get information that goes beyond the photos and phrases posted on Dating.
6. Include the events and groups you attend
You can include the groups you participate in and the events you attend to confer suitors with mutual interests in Dating. When this option is enabled, data is only available to users who have also opted in.

7. Be careful when sharing your personal data.
One important point worth noting is that personal information should not be shared on the social network with whom you just met. While the site is secure, bank details, home addresses, document numbers and credit cards, for example, must be kept confidential to prevent Internet scams.
8. Share your meeting place with family or friends
Security experts recommend that dating from social networking sites or apps should always be held in public places. In addition, to ensure your safety, the tool also provides a feature to share the meeting place with family or friends.
One of Facebook Dating's main criteria for searching profiles is location. It is therefore important to make sure that the information is correct to enable flirting with people close to you. The user also has the option to set, in his personal preferences, the distance limit of the applicant, which can be from 5 km to 400 km.

As interesting as this list is, the most important point is authenticity. Do not put false information and photos that are not yours on your personal profile. Fake profiles are never well regarded in communities, so try to be honest to increase the chances of healthy dating.
