Mark Zuckerberg mentioned that they have developed this feature by keeping privacy in mind and they are focused on helping people in developing meaningful relationships, not hookups like Tinder.

This year, things might be different.

But while dating stole the show, Facebook made many other announcements at its developer conference, which continues Wednesday in California. Those include how much of the company's revenue comes from Myanmar and if there was any link between the USA elections and the 2017 purge of fake accounts.

He profusely thanked the developers on the platform and announced that Facebook is re-opening app reviews so developers can keep moving forward.

After telling a totally-not-creepy-at-all story about how many kids have been spawned from Facebook romances Tuesday afternoon at the F8 developer conference, Mark Zuckerberg announced "Facebook for Dating". In March, Facebook revealed that Cambridge Analytica, a political marketing firm used by the Trump campaign, had improperly obtained the personal information of 87 million users. Facebook has been doing damage control ever since - at least until today.

A spokesperson for Bumble said the company was "thrilled" when it saw the Facebook news. This is already what other dating apps that rely on Facebook data do, such as Tinder.

This mapping out of significant spaces is said to be another important step in a path of creating a feeling of significance and presence. Cubeyou has about 30 employees; Facebook, almost 28,000.

A more recent change, Zuckerberg detailed on Tuesday, involves letting people delete a history of the websites they may have visited from Facebook as well as the cookies companies use to track people across multiple sites. "Your Facebook won't be quite as good while it relearns your preferences", said Zuckerberg.

"I think the reaction is a combination of the Facebook news along with concerns that Match was getting toppy", or expensive, Kurnos told Reuters.

It also has new sharing experiences including Oculus Venues, a way to experience live concerts and events in virtual reality. And he came alive showing off the cool stuff Facebook is building, including a Facebook dating tool and the Oculus Go virtual-reality headset. At $199, Zuckerberg called it "the first really affordable standalone VR headset". Quarterly shipments of VR headsets to storefronts just crossed the 1 million mark late past year, and the platforms that support Spaces accounted for roughly a third of that - with Oculus Rift at 210,000 shipments and HTC Vive at 160,000. And Chief Product Officer Chris Cox says the company will share more information in the coming months.
