  • - Facebook's F8 Developer Conference

  • started off on a somber note this year.

  • Over the past two months, Facebook has been shaken

  • by the Cambridge Analytica data privacy scandal

  • which ultimately saw Mark Zuckerberg

  • called before congress to defend

  • Facebook's data collection practices.

  • At the same time, critics are raising hard questions

  • about Facebook's impact on society

  • with some calling it a breeding ground

  • for misinformation and hate.

  • Zuckerberg started F8 with a speech

  • that addressed those questions head on.

  • - Now, I know that it hasn't been easy

  • being a developer these last couple of months

  • and that's probably an understatement,

  • but what I can assure you is that we're hard at work

  • making sure that people don't misuse this platform

  • so you can all keep building things that people love.

  • - In the midst of that crisis of trust,

  • Facebook is rolling out one of its most socially

  • ambitious project in years, a dating app.

  • - We're announcing a new set of features

  • coming soon around dating.

  • (audience cheers)

  • Now, this is gonna be for building

  • real long-term relationships, not just hookups.

  • - Where most dating apps focus on matching specific people,

  • Facebook's system focuses on common events and groups

  • giving you something to do on your first date.

  • Facebook also promises not to match you

  • with people who are already your friend,

  • an awkward situation that's unavoidable on most dating apps.

  • - And I know a lot of you are gonna have questions

  • about this so I wanna be clear that we've designed this

  • with privacy and safety in mind from the beginning.

  • Your friends aren't gonna see your profile.

  • You're only gonna be suggested people

  • who are not your friends who have opted into dating

  • who fit your preferences, although I can't promise

  • that you're gonna get a mate.

  • - It's a really ambitious project,

  • potentially opening up a whole new side of Facebook,

  • but it also takes a lot of trust.

  • The new app is entirely opt-in

  • and Facebook says it's built it with privacy in mind

  • but it's hard not to worry that some dating profile pic

  • won't find its way back onto your Facebook wall

  • or some old Facebook post won't somehow make it

  • on to the app.

  • Do we really trust Facebook to handle this right?

  • At the same time, there are already a lot of dating apps

  • including ones like Tinder that use

  • Facebook's social graph to connect people.

  • If you want an app that knows your Facebook friends

  • but isn't ran by Facebook, you have a lot of options

  • so how much real advantage does Facebook really have here?

  • Facebook clearly thinks users will trust them here

  • and you can see why.

  • The company's had a lot of bad headlines

  • but people aren't leaving Facebook

  • and they're making more money than ever.

  • At the most recent quarterly earnings,

  • Facebook reported adding a half a million

  • regular users everyday.

  • So by the numbers, it looks like

  • Zuckerberg's apology tour is working.

  • But if Facebook's bond with users is starting to turn sour,

  • you'd expect it to hurt projects like this the most.

  • It's really hard to launch a new app

  • even for a company as powerful as Facebook.

  • Past developer conferences are littered with good ideas

  • that just never took off.

  • It's too early to say if Facebook's dating app

  • will be one of those failures but if it is,

  • it might be because after so many bad scandals

  • and bad excuses, users decided

  • they just didn't wanna risk it.

  • The thing is, it would've been really easy

  • for Facebook to delay this announcement,

  • pushing it closer to launch or outside

  • the F8 cycle entirely, but Facebook didn't do that.

  • They bet that the hangover from Cambridge Analytica

  • just wouldn't be a problem and they made that bet

  • with dating, one of the most private

  • and sensitive things we do as people.

  • Now, we're gonna find out if they bet right.

  • Thanks for watching.

  • Would you trust Facebook's new dating app?

  • Let us know in the comments

  • and we just launched a new Verge Science YouTube channel,

  • we're gonna do some really awesome stuff there

  • so go subscribe.
