Facebook Dating's Secret Crush feature on Revu Philippines

Facebook’s ‘Secret Crush’ could match you with someone you like

In Games, Apps, and OS by Alora Uy GuerreroLeave a Comment

You probably know that Facebook has launched a Tinder-like feature for its users in 19 new countries in Asia and South America, including the Philippines.

Facebook Dating does exactly what its name says it does: suggest potential matches for you based on your location, interests, and mutual friends, among others. But what has piqued our interest is “Secret Crush,” which is available to those who have opted in to use Facebook Dating.

The premise is you can add up to as many as nine crushes among your Facebook friends. If they are also in the in-app feature, they will be notified that someone has a crush on them. If they have you on their list, too, then congratulations! Bring out the wine and Facebook will reveal your names to each other. And maybe from there, you guys will live happily ever after.

What happens if the feeling is not mutual? Well, they will be left to wonder who likes them. No worries, the company will not tell on you, saving you from embarrassment — if you can call it that.

We haven’t received the new update yet, so we haven’t personally tried Facebook Dating. (For testing purposes, okay?) But this GIF image from U.S.-based publication Wired should give us — and you — an idea how it works even before it’s rolled out to our respective devices.


Easy, yeah?
