"Facebook is internally testing Facebook Dating", she wrote.

"We are testing Facebook Dating internally (as we regularly do with new features), but we don't have anything more to share right now", Jillian Stefanki, a Facebook spokeswoman, said in an email to Fortune.

A Twitter user named Jane Manchun Wong shared screenshots of what she uncovered from Facebook's tests.

Facebook Product Chief Chris Cox showed a design of the dating project to the audience. Aspiring yenta Mark Zuckerberg explained it was "going to be for building real, long-term relationships, not hookups". "Your friends aren't going to see your profile, and you're only going to be suggested to people who are not your friends". It will have a feature called "unlocking" that will make your profile visible to other attendees of events or members of groups.
