As part of the redesigned Facebook presentation, the company has also unveiled the incorporation of Facebook Dating into 14 countries (Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam and Suriname) with the US taking turns in late 2019.
Facebook proves that it also bets a lot on Facebook Dating in an attempt to compete with Tinder in a different way. Rather than looking for potential erotic partners among strangers, Facebook launches Secret Crush to help people who are already familiar to come closer.
Essentially, Secret Crush is a list where you can add up to 9 friends who are interested in something more than a "hello" on Facebook Messenger. If these friends use Facebook Dating, they will be notified that someone has added them to the Secret Crush list, but without knowing who their friend is. In order to "tie the sweet" he should also state you in his own list, so he becomes "match" and only then you learn both about the intentions of the other.
Note that if the friend you added to the Secret Crush list does not add to you, then you will never know about your interest. If he also does not use Facebook Dating in general, he will never be notified that someone has added him to the Secret Crush list. It is also clear that this list is strictly personal and is not published anywhere.
Finally, in order to avoid spam, Facebook said that you could make additions to the Secret Crush list at specific time intervals.
