But Facebook said this is not the case. Noting that people tell him all the time that they met their partner on Facebook.

According to a linked support page on preventing platform abuse, Facebook will inform users if it has removed an app for misusing data. You will be able to build an online profile for others to look at and yes, your friends can't look at it. The massive hack prompted new questions about privacy levels on the platform, incited a #DeleteFacebook movement by some users and sent Zuckerberg to the Capitol to testify for hours in front of members of Congress. That could mean reentering usernames and passwords as Facebook relearns user settings and preferences.

A translation tool is being added to Facebook's Marketplace - the platform's area to buy and sell items - created to enable users to communicate in different languages and maintain understanding. Facebook is going to get into the dating game.

Zuckerberg is also likely to talk up new stuff, including AR and virtual reality.

The need for additional equipment is one of the reasons virtual reality, or VR, has had limited appeal so far.

Facebook is also reviewing applications overall as well as auditing those that accessed large amounts of data to make sure access isn't abused, he said.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg gave another public mea culpa for the social network's massive data leak when he took the stage at its annual F8 developer conference on Tuesday morning - and introduced a new feature to help users safeguard their data.

That is, if you want.

It will take months to build the new Clear History feature, Egan wrote, adding that the company will work with privacy advocates, academics, policy makers and regulators for input on how to remove personal information. So, dating features won't be on Facebook soon, though you can expect their arrival before too long.

The company has been under fire recently for possibly not considering users' privacy and security in its features. He even goes on to dig at popular dating app Tinder, by saying the Facebook dating service is designed for "relationships" instead of "hookups". In fact, after weeks of saying he's sorry to users and lawmakers alike, Zuckerberg did not apologize to the app developers in attendance at F8.

Texas Couple Charged With Enslaving African Girl
After years of physical and emotional abuse and suppression, the girl was finally able to escape, leading to the couple's arrest. The Toures are also accused of confiscating the girl's official documentation and keeping her in the USA until her visa expired.

Users can set up a dating profile with their first name, which the company said won't be visible to friends and will not appear in News Feeds.

He also reiterated that Facebook is investing a lot in security and in strengthening its systems so they can't be exploited to meddle with elections.

Zuckerberg also revealed new tweaks to the core Facebook app.

The Facebook CEO, who sported a blue long-sleeved shirt and dark trousers, appeared more relaxed addressing app developers than Congress in suit and tie, energetically skipping from one product announcement to the next, while cracking jokes and grinning at shout-outs.

It's normally a sympathetic audience.
