Menlo Park: Facebook is the largest social networking website in the world. In a giant step, Facebook is planning to launch a matchmaking app soon to help youth to find better partner for their life. Facebook has more than 1.39 billion active users worldwide, mostly youth. The company is planning to help these large number of youth to find a better partner for their life.
Facebook is working on it
“We are working on a matchmaking app to help youth to find a better life partner through our network”, a person who is a team member of this project told us on condition of anonymity.
Facebook is working secretly on this project and World News Express is the first news portal to leak the information.
An app will use Facebook Data
There are more than 1.39 billion active users on Facebook and company is planning to use this data to build app. In a smart move, Facebook will not allow users who are married, engaged, in a relationship or already have life partner. Facebook will check user’s relationship status before accepting him/her in app.
Youth already using Facebook to find a partner
“Our data shows that mostly youth use Facebook as one of the most popular ways to find a life partner or a time pass partner”, a project member told World News Express in a telephonic tonic and he declined further comment.
Threat to Matchmaking Portals
What will happen to matchmaking portals? We are predicting that matchmaking portals will see negative growth if Facebook app becomes popular among the youth.
Free or Paid?
Facebook is planning to provide this matchmaking app free of charge. The company is planning to monetize this app by ‘promoted profiles’, where user have to pay charges to show his/her profile on top of search results.
Facebook’s matchmaking app will be available on iOS Store, Google Play Store, Windows Mobile Store, and Blackberry Store soon.
