Using facebook for dating
You can try making contact with the person you want to meet directly, but this is going to be a bit harder than being introduced.
You don’t have the benefit of a referral from your friend when you go it alone.
We also use this information to show you ads for similar films you may like in the future.
Like Oath, our partners may also show you ads that they think match your interests.
It’s actually better than being set up on a blind date since you can choose who you want to be set up with.
A slightly less effective strategy is to introduce yourself directly.
We (Oath) and our partners need your consent to access your device, set cookies, and use your data, including your location, to understand your interests, provide relevant ads and measure their effectiveness.
Oath will also provide relevant ads to you on our partners' products.
Ask one of your friends, who is also friends with the person you want to meet, to hook you up.
This tactic works best when the person you want to meet and your friend are friends in real life.
When you have mutual friends like this, it’s almost like a blind date, but better.
Facebook will sometimes display whether the person you’re friending is single or not.
If the person has set his privacy settings to allow other people to see this information, then you’ll know whether the person is worth pursuing or not.
