This laser-sharp focus on providing a great user experience is something that Facebook’s management does not get enough credit for, but as a user I surely appreciate.

But most importantly, First, some quick background on myself.

I’m the founder of Snap Interactive, which created the first successful Facebook dating app in 2007 called Are You Interested?

Facebook has over 200 million users who identify as ‘single’, and if just one-third (33%) of them use the new dating features (67 million), Facebook likely becomes the largest dating site in the world with a never ending supply of new singles to browse through in search of romance. Facebook will stay true to their values and focus on creating a great user experience, something that eludes most dating sites.

Ironically, online dating sites are one of the only businesses that lose customers when they are successful.

Think about how often you get a suggested match of someone who is too far away, a different religion, much older (or younger), or is someone you have nothing in common with.

Dating sites fall short on creating relevant matches due a combination of: 1) lack of users, 2) lack of data on those users, 3) and a lack of talented product managers and data scientists to create a great algorithm.When more detailed search criteria like height, body type, and ethnicity get applied, that number is further reduced to just a few results.This is why the same legacy dating sites continue to get bigger over the years, while new innovative dating sites launch but disappear just as quickly.These newbies will then become curious to see what else is out there and start using niche-dating sites in addition to Facebook Dating.There are a number of studies that support the idea that the average single uses several different online dating sites simultaneously.And I can confidently say ‘No’ — quite the contrary.
