Dating apps either use algorithms to help you find the "perfect match", like OkCupid and eHarmony, or they make no claims to perfection and keep things more casual, like Tinder.

Zuckerberg was speaking at his firm's annual F8 developers conference in San Jose, California. Instead of short-term relationships and hook ups Mark Zuckerberg wants to enable long-term relationships and thus connect the users with each other.

But some privacy experts are not convinced that the new dating feature is a good idea, according to SFGate.

According to a Pew Research Center Social Media Fact Sheet dated February 5, 18- to 29-year-olds are still the most likely Facebook users among those who are active on social media, with 81 percent of that age group using the app or website.

"If someone accessed that much of my information, I'd finally fake my death and create that new identity I've always dreamt about", said one Facebook user who requested anonymity while it was still an option.

"We're flattered that Facebook is coming into our space", Ginsberg said.

People are not happy with Facebook after it announced that the social media platform is making a dating service.

You can say look I'm not interested in seeing an ad like this, for example, or a post like that, so there is some control over there, but I think a lot of value propositions of Facebook is that you don't consciously opt into things, it just happens in the background.

Grindr launched in 2009 and is the most popular dating app among gay men in the world.

"This has been an intense year", Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg quipped on Tuesday morning. "It could be all of the other stuff they do, and so they have an interesting set of baggage". We all know how he booted Eduardo Saverin, co-founder of Facebook, from the company.
