Facebook gave a preview of its Dating features back in May at its F8 conference. Now we're getting an early look at its onboarding process thanks to screenshots pulled from the Facebook app's code by mobile researcher and frequent TechCrunch tipster Jane Manchun Wong.

Once you opt in to activating Facebook Dating, only other people who have also turned it on will be able to see you, and it won’t be shared to News Feed. You’ll unlock Groups or Events you’re a part of for Dating, and you’ll be able to browse potential matches based on the plethora of info Facebook knows about you. If two people express interest in each other (no swiping), they can text each other over Messenger or WhatsApp.

Facebook has no plan for paid subscriptions to premium Dating features. It’s currently not going to show ads in Dating though it could reconsider that later.

For now Facebook is taking carefuk steps towards Dating. It’s not blitzing into the market with a big flashy app. Instead it’s hoping the feature could create the meaningful relationships that make people appreciate Facebook and stick with it over the years. That’s more important than ever with all its recent troubles.
