Chaque vendredi, dans sa revue de presse, Maddyness vous propose une sélection d’articles sur un sujet chaud qui ont retenu l’attention de la rédaction. Cette semaine, Facebook a annoncé le prochain lancement de sa fonctionnalité de dating.

For More Than Just Friends? Facebook Will Soon Offer a Dating Service

L’annonce

At Facebook’s annual developer conference on Tuesday, Mr. Zuckerberg revealed that the world’s largest social network will soon offer an online dating service. More than 200 million people on Facebook identify themselves as single, he said, and the new service will let these people connect with each other from within the company’s primary app. “This is for building real long-term relationships, not just hookups” Mr. Zuckerberg said, in an apparent jab at dating apps like Tinder that have a reputation for stoking casual romantic behavior.

Facebook's new dating feature could crush apps like Tinder

Le mode d’emploi

The new dating app will allow Facebook users to create separate profiles from their main Facebook accounts to pursue romantic connections. The two profiles won’t interact, meaning your Facebook friends won’t be able to see what your Dating profile says. To help keep the two versions of your Facebook self separate, your Dating profile will only use your first name, and your existing Facebook friends won’t appear as potential matches. Dating will also have a dedicated inbox that, unlike Messenger, does not allow you to send photos or links. You can only send text-based messages when chatting for the first time, which Facebook describes as a safety measure. Facebook will use a unique algorithm to match you with potential dates, based on “dating preferences, things in common, and mutual friends.” You will also be able to find romantic interests via shared Groups and Events. For example, if you’re attending a concert, you’ll be able to « unlock » your profile, so that potential matches who have said they’re going to the same show can see it. The social network says it’s going to start testing Dating later this year, and that it’s not going to use information from the feature to target ads. Lire la suite sur Wired

Facebook dating: could the tech giant be the ultimate matchmaker?

L’analyse

One of the many shortcomings of meeting a partner online is the transactional and often transitory nature of relationships formed. Despite all the psycho-babble bunting offered by sites like eHarmony, all dating sites are reliant on algorithms: a computer spits out a series of people you’re compatible with based on your input such as postcode, smoker status and the degree to which you’ve been saved by Jesus. As it turns out, on-paper compatibility is not actually a very good determinant of relationship longevity. Many factors dictate why some relationships succeed and others don’t: key are the strength of our ties. Being matched with someone who lives in Melbourne and who likes Quentin Tarantino films might be a satisfactory basis for a hook-up, but it’s insufficient as the sole basis for a relationship. Conversely though, sharing a workplace, a school, or mutual friends means your ties are strengthened, your lives are integrated, and your bond is more likely to endure.

Facebook’s New Dating Feature Is Already Under Scrutiny

La polémique

The Nordea funds that blacklisted Facebook Inc. for privacy risks are now questioning the social media giant’s decision to expand into a dating service that will rely on highly sensitive personal information being shared. Facebook unveiled the dating feature on Tuesday, sending shares of competing services lower. Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg acknowledged that the company needs “to do more to keep people safe but we will also keep building”. In an effort to address concerns about privacy and data collection, Facebook says it’s working on a « clear history » tool that will give users the option of scrubbing their accounts of data sent to the social network via outside websites and apps. The Menlo Park, California-based company said the feature, which will take several months to build, is a response to feedback showing that users want more control over their personal information.

Facebook's dating app is finally making privacy invasion sexy

L’ironie de l’histoire

Thank God Facebook is finally offering a dating app. Who better to entrust with the most intimate parts of our lives than Mark Zuckerberg, the king of privacy? I assume Zuck will be building it off of one of the early projects that established him as a wunderkind: FaceMash. You may remember it – it’s the one where he hacked into campus websites, collecting pictures that allowed Harvard students to rank each other by hotness. With Facebook dating, the FaceMash dream is at last becoming reality.
