While Facebook has allowed users to share their personal life by sharing their relationship status and more, they are looking to dive a little deeper into the dating service.

At the F8 developer conference, Zuckerberg announced that a Facebook dating service, which the social media company had actually considered for more than a decade, will launch soon.

Following the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Zuckerberg also vowed to make privacy protection its priority and said that the dating feature was built from the ground-up with privacy and safety in mind.

Talking at a software developer conference yesterday, under-fire chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said the app would focus on "real-long term relationships - not just hookups". The two most obvious being: why and how does the company plan on ensuring relationships formed via Facebook are long-term?

"We're starting with something a lot of people have asked about recently: the information we see from websites and apps that use Facebook's ads and analytics tools". By indicating she wants to go to a specific event via Facebook, other people with dating profiles interested in the same event will be notified. Which is to say your current Facebook friends won't show up as aa potential match.

"Facebook faces challenges in user engagement with the same age group that now dominates online dating (young adults)", the PiperJaffray analysts said.

According to Facebook, the feature will recommend potential matches based on dating preferences, common interests and mutual friends.

There's also a trade-in offer up to 6,000 INR ($90) and a no-cost EMI variant for up to 12 months starting at 5,417 INR/month. However, there is no official information that from when non-prime users can place their order for Huawei P20 and P20 lite.

With a new integration platform, people will now be able to share their favorite playlist on Spotify to Instagram Story.

Zuckerberg addressed the exposé to subsequently explain that these security issues will be fixed, as data and information security will be made a priority for the company from now on.

"We're flattered that Facebook is coming into our space - and sees the global opportunity that we do", Match CEO Mandy Ginsberg said in an e-mailed statement. Match, which owns apps like Tinder and OkCupid, fell 22 percent, the worst single-day drop in its history, while IAC fell 19 percent, the most since 2001.

"We have a responsibility to move forward on what everyone else expects from us, to keep building in meaningful ways".

Facebook users who are concerned about privacy after the recent Cambridge Analytica scandal will be pleased with another of the announcements.

As the name suggests, the smart speaker of Facebook is going to be Facebook's smart home gadget which will allow the user to message anyone from home via voice talks.

These worries have been expounded upon in the past week: A recent report found that at least 25,936 malicious apps are now using one of Facebook's APIs to access a range of information from Facebook profiles, like name, location and email address.
