New dating application on facebook
Whitney Wolfe Herd, the founder of Bumble, was previously one of the earliest employees at Tinder.
Both Hinge and Facebook Dating also allow users to post answers to questions on their profiles, like whether they prefer dogs or cats.
When Facebook announced a new dating feature at its annual developer conference this week, it drew quick comparisons to existing apps like Tinder and Bumble.
But the social network's matchmaking service, simply called Dating, most closely resembles another, lesser known dating app: Hinge.
Again, Facebook Dating has yet to launch, so it's impossible to know exactly how much it has in common with Hinge.
But at first glance, they seem nearly identical, not just because they have the same features but also in the way they're designed.
