Watch out, Tinder, Facebook is getting into online dating

With Facebook for Dating, you're either out or way too far in

With Facebook's dating feature, a user can set up a profile that will be separate from their regular profile and nothing connected to their dating feature activities will ever show up in News Feed.

Mr. Zuckerberg may be traveling overseas to speak with members of the European Parliament this month, Politico reported last week, and Mr. Collins' committee "would like Mr. Zuckerberg to come to London during his European trip", his letter said.

Daniel Kurnos, an analyst at the Benchmark Company, also cited the difficulty of creating a popular dating site, cautioning that it was not an overnight project and one that requires much more than sheer machine learning.

"I know a lot of you are going to have questions about this".

We'll find out more about Facebook's dating app when it's released later this year.

The annual conference began as a way for Facebook to announce major initiatives, such as its technology to connect users' accounts with websites around the web, as well as revamped designs for users' profile pages. While the $200 headset has been in the works for a while, it was not available for purchase until Tuesday. Zuckerberg said everyone in the audience would receive a free Oculus Go.

Zuckerberg is also likely to talk up new stuff, including AR and virtual reality. The new features are rolling out this month.

Sainsbury's shares up 15% as it strikes deal to acquire Asda
The last big deal by Sainsbury's, which has a market value of £5.9 billion, was its £1.4 billion purchase of Argos in 2016. News of the tie-up sent Sainsbury's share price surging 14.5 percent to 309 pence by the close of trading in London.

The Facebook CEO, who sported a blue long-sleeved shirt and dark trousers, appeared more relaxed addressing app developers than Congress in suit and tie, energetically skipping from one product announcement to the next, while cracking jokes and grinning at shout-outs.

The company is also continuing to expand its augmented reality offerings, like 3D photos. Though the release date and rollout info for Facebook Dating won't be released until later this year, the fact that it got to this stage without seemingly anyone noting the potential user safety implications is telling.

Zuckerberg even found time to make a joke about his recent congressional testimony on the data leak.

Since March, Facebook has been reeling from revelations about Cambridge Analytica, a British political firm which Facebook says improperly collected data on 87 million Facebook users and used it for political campaigns around the world. You may have to sign back in to every website, and you may have to reconfigure things.

Either way, a Facebook dating app would do gangbusters, as the sheer amount of data the company has on people would make matchmaking a snap.

Zuckerberg testified before Congress last month for about 10 hours over two days. Some of my friends actually did this!

"Let's not do that again anytime soon".
