"Finding a romantic partner is deeply personal, which is why we built Dating with safety, security and privacy at the forefront. We're committed to making Facebook Dating a place where people feel comfortable looking for a date and starting meaningful relationships," Facebook wrote in a blog post.
Facebook says since its launch, Dating has created over 1.5 billion matches in the 20 countries where the feature is already available. The social media giant is also rolling out a new 'Virtual Dates' feature where Dating users can start a video chat with their match by tapping on the video icon in the chat.
