While bare bones and plain, the user interface works similarly to that of Tinder, which also requires both parties to "swipe right" to start connecting.

A new way to meet up is being tested by Facebook for their Messenger application. Do let us know if this feature is appearing on your Facebook Messenger app too.
In order to do so, Facebook has randomly picked a few Facebook users and tried testing out this new feature. We believe that Facebook is better with current Friends of Friends and " People you may know" suggestions. A Facebook spokesperson told Motherboard, "People often use Facebook to make plans with their friends". It seems that the new feature may be used to convince Facebook friends that rarely interact in person to get out in the real world and meet each other, but whether the new feature will be a success is yet to be seen.

Contacted by Motherboard, the company founded by Mark Zuckerberg has made it clear that he was not really dating nature lovers or sexual, as Tinder, but to encourage the friends to Facebookto see in real life.
