An independent app researcher Jane Manchun Wong found evidence of the FB Dating App feature testing and posted it on Twitter.
Jane Twitted some screenshots claiming to be screens of FB Dating app, she wrote “Facebook is internally testing Facebook Dating. I can’t go past the signup screen because they are not activating all non-employee Dating profiles because, well, it’s “pre-launch” ;)”

Though there is no official confirmation from FB about screenshot shared by Jane, if her screenshots to be believed, it looks like the app will let you prevent your current Facebook friends from seeing your dating profile, thus avoiding possible awkwardness. It’ll also offer a variety of gender options, including trans man, trans woman, and non-binary.
earlier Facebook on its blog, Facebook published few details about its dating app: “People will be able to create a dating profile that is separate from their Facebook profile — and potential matches will be recommended based on dating preferences, things in common, and mutual friends. They’ll have the option to discover others with similar interests through their Groups or Events.”
as per dailymail “Facebook employees in the company’s offices in Mountain View, California, who opted into the internal testing programme were sent links to sign up to the app last week.”
“They were instructed to log in and share ‘dummy’ information to test the app and find any glitches – a process called ‘dogfooding’ – ahead of its launch.”
“However, they were warned that the app is not designed to enable relationships in the office.”
