Does Facebook want to help you have SEX? Social network begins testing new 'Tinder-style' feature

The Facebook Messenger feature is pretty similar to many dating apps, however, here it can just be you hanging out with some long lost school friends over a drink, or go bowling or whatever. If you answer yes, the answer will remain a secret until the other person responds yes also. So is this enticing enough to make us finally use Facebook again? No. Some of Facebook's suggestions were just friends. Unlike Tinder, which brings together strangers, the new feature only works with people that are already Facebook friends.The tool appears to rely on artificial intelligence to connect people within their network and is now in beta mode. "We look forward to hearing people's feedback", said Facebook.

The company is rolling out a feature that allows you to get a closer look at your friend's buddies.

Surely, after some time it will be available for all users. As per their statement, "People often use Facebook to make plans with their friends".

It does seem to make sense if Facebook is trying to take on other dating services. A button will appear telling users to "get to know [name's] friends".
