How is Facebook Dating different from Facebook?

Access Dating from your current Facebook account on the Android or iPhone apps.
Facebook Dating is different from your Facebook profile in several ways:
  • Although you access Dating from your Facebook account, your Dating profile is different from your Facebook profile. Your current Facebook friends and anyone outside of Dating can't see your Dating profile. For example, your Dating activities don't appear on your Facebook News Feed.
  • All conversations you have in Dating are separate from your conversations on Facebook Messenger.
  • You can delete your Dating profile without deleting your Facebook account. However, deleting your Facebook account also deletes your Dating profile.
Note that if you become friends on Facebook with someone you've matched with, your matches or suggested matches in Dating will still be able to see your Dating profile.
