Facebook launches functionality for dating in Portugal


has just launched a feature specialized in “meetings” in the Portuguese market. The new functionality aims to distinguish itself from the competition (read Tinder and the like) through tools that are already part of the largest social networks and also the collection of information related to interests and trends that users accept to make available on the social network. The new potentially dating tool is called Facebook Dating and has already provided one billion connections between people with the same preferences or interests, before arriving in Portugal.

The functionality developed to facilitate romantic encounters will allow the use of video and text excerpts that are known as “stories” on Instagram and Facebook. The new dating feature, which anyone can quickly create on their profile, should work, for the most part, without involving connections from people who are “friends” on Facebook or followers on Instagram, but there is also an exception: if the user wants to , you can choose nine of those friends / followers – and if those people have also chosen the user in question, then there will automatically be a compatible connection between the two (or a “match”, as they say in English).

It is also possible to establish relationships with people who use the “Meetings” functionality and who subscribe to certain Facebook Groups or Events. For those who prefer a first preparatory virtual meeting, it is also possible to use video calls between the participants.

Facebook worked with experts in these areas to provide direct access to security tips and create a protected environment, including the ability to block and report anyone, or prohibit someone from uploading photos, videos, links, or even payment methods. Activity in ‘Encontros do Facebook’, who a person likes or dislikes, will not be shared with anyone outside of ‘Encontros do Facebook’. Facebook is not going to suggest Facebook and Instagram friends as potential calls or even notify anyone on the platform, ” refers to the social network in a statement.
