How do I turn on Dating on Facebook?

Answered by Cody Janus

To activate Facebook Dating, you’ll need to follow these steps:

1. Start by opening the Facebook app on your mobile device. Make sure you have the latest version of the app installed.

2. Once the app is open, tap on the three-line menu icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. This will open a menu with various options.

3. In the menu, scroll down until you find the “Dating” option. It should be listed under the “All Shortcuts” section. Tap on “Dating” to proceed.

4. Upon tapping on “Dating,” you’ll be taken to the Facebook Dating section. If it’s your first time accessing it, you’ll see a screen with an introduction to Facebook Dating. Tap on “Get Started” to continue.

5. Next, you’ll be prompted to set up your dating profile. This will involve selecting your gender, choosing the gender(s) you’re interested in, and confirming your location. Fill in these details accordingly and tap on “Next” to proceed.

6. After setting up your profile, you’ll have the option to add photos and answer some questions to showcase your personality and interests. This step is optional, but it’s recommended as it can help others get to know you better. Take your time to add photos and answer the questions, and tap on “Next” when you’re ready to move on.

7. Once you’ve completed the profile setup, you can start browsing and connecting with potential matches. Facebook Dating will show you suggested matches based on your preferences and interests. You can like or comment on their profiles to express interest, and if they reciprocate, you can start a conversation.

That’s it! You’ve now turned on Facebook Dating and can start exploring the dating features within the Facebook app. Remember to review and adjust your privacy settings to ensure you’re comfortable with the information you’re sharing on your dating profile.

Please note that Facebook Dating is currently available in select countries, so make sure it’s available in your location before trying to activate it.
