A dating service "represents a potentially challenging situation if Facebook can't fulfill its promise to offer dating services in a privacy-protected and safe way", said Debra Aho Williamson, an analyst at eMarketer.

Facebook's founder and chief executive has turned down requests to give evidence to a committee investigating fake news, sending deputies instead. Friends will not be able to see each others' dating profiles, Zuckerberg said.

More information will be shared in the next few months, Zuckerberg confirmed.

Facebook has admitted that up to 87 million users may have had their data hijacked by Cambridge Analytica, which worked for US President Donald Trump during his 2016 campaign.

At the end of the statement, they said that they want to put the user in control and be transparent about information that Facebook has and it is being used. The company is also ready to launch a portable headset that it's counting on to transform the geeky realm of virtual reality into a mass phenomenon. Coming in at $199, the Oculus Go is significantly cheaper than its predecessor, but doesn't require any cable or connections to run.

Facebook also made the surprise announcement that its portable VR headset - Oculus Go - would go on sale in the USA on Tuesday, priced $199 (£146).

Dating profiles will only feature a first name, and will highlights users' interests and have some photos.

At Tuesday's F8 developer conference, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg announced the company is launching a dating feature. The company has been under fire recently for possibly not doing this with some of its features over the years. Tinder, one of Match's most valuable properties, has been rapidly adding new features to get users to pay for its services.

Many websites and apps use Facebook services to make their content and ads more engaging and relevant. So they have a lot of questions.

Karnataka face-off: PM Modi unleashes blistering attack, Congress counters
The Union government has put on hold Karnataka government's proposal to approve an official flag for the state. He also said by raking up Dalit issue from time to time the Congress has only tried to divide the nation.

But unlike other recent public appearances, he did not start off with an apology for the company's recent privacy scandal.

It marks the latest effort to deal with a privacy scandal involving a political consultancy. He has asked Facebook to confirm the CEO's attendance by May 11.

It's normally a sympathetic audience. This year, they were supposed to introduce the whole world to their new smart speaker, which is internally known by the name Portal.

But Zuckerberg suggested that Facebook would not slow down and wouldn't distance itself from developers as it prioritizes data privacy. Tech analyst Debra Williamson says developers also have some tough questions for Facebook.
