Facebook in a bid to spread its Stories product, has introduced the feature to Facebook Dating users. Users on the platform can share their Instagram or Facebook stories on the dating platform as a way of bringing them closer to current matches or potential matches.
It is important to note that Daters will be unable to capture content from the dating platform directly, but can choose what contents to share from the platform as well as post from Instagram or Facebook.
As explained by Charmaine Hung, product manager on Stories for Facebook Dating, the purpose of introducing the Stories feature to the dating platform is to help Daters have a better understanding of the people they are interested in, simultaneously confirming their humanity.
Users from the Facebook Dating platform can choose to link their Instagram profiles to their Facebook Dating profiles so as to help other Daters know more about them.
