When Mark Zuckerberg took the stage this week at Facebook'sF8 developer conference to discuss the future of Facebook and its related properties - including Instagram - one of the first new features he announced was something of a surprise. They can then start chats with other singles in a messaging app that will function outside of Facebook Messenger. While highlighting Facebook "Watch Party", allowing users to watch video together, Zuckerberg said it's flawless for if "your friend is testifying in front of Congress, for example". "We need to make sure they are used for good".
Also considering Facebook's recent drama with Cambridge Analytica, this dating service is being built with privacy in mind, so that friends will not be able to see a person's dating profile.

The move into dating comes as Facebook is still reeling from a loss of trust following the Cambridge Analytica data breach scandal.

"I know this is going to be harder work on both ends for us".
"This is how we are thinking about our responsibility: to keep people safe and to keep building", said Zuckerberg. Other new features coming to Instagram include augmented reality overlays from developers, like amusing mustaches and hats, and new ways for third-party apps to have videos post directly to stories on Instagram and Facebook.
A year ago, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was dazzling thousands of software developers with the prospect of augmented reality features that could let people spruce up apartments with digital art. WhatsApp co-founder and CEO Jan Koum, a fierce privacy advocate, said Monday that he was leaving Facebook and the Facebook board of directors. It gives Facebook until May 11 to confirm that Zuckerberg will come or face the wrath of the committee.
