Either way, a Facebook dating app would do gangbusters, as the sheer amount of data the company has on people would make matchmaking a snap. For WhatsApp, Facebook will soon bring group video calling. Most recently, the company has used the event to discuss better ways for app developers to tie into its services with things like games for its Messenger service, augmented reality features for its Facebook app, and new artificial intelligence programs.

However, free communication is not always offered by online dating outlets. When news of Facebook's dating feature broke Tuesday, Match Group's stock plummeted by 17 percent, according to CNet. Sparks Networks, owner of JDate and ChristianMingle, fell 7.3 percent.

"This is going to be for building real, long-term relationships - not just for hookups", Zuckerberg joked onstage, saying that it's going to be within the main Facebook app, but it will be entirely optional and opt-in only. They can then browse through those individuals and start a conversation in a private messaging inbox. The feature appeared on desktop, but not on mobile. And let's not forget that earlier today, Facebook briefly went a bit nuts and asked people under every single post if said text or image was "hate speech".

Rise in interest rates spark panic on Wall Street
The stock market had already been spooked by a climb in bond yields earlier in the year, sliding sharply in February. Investors reacted negatively to the news that the benchmark 10-year Treasury yield had traded up to 3.03 percent.

Facebook's chief has said that 2018 has been an "intense year" for his firm, but that he was committed to taking a "broader view" of its responsibilities.

While Zuckerberg repeatedly appealed to developers to join Facebook's cause to connect the world, he had one other announcement to win over the crowd: Everyone at the conference is receiving a free Oculus Go. "That's what got the gears turning", he said. If Facebook offered a dating service, it would essentially be eliminating the middleman.

"Time will tell, but this may help Facebook overcome the shadow of the Cambridge Analytica scandal", he said.

With a new dating app, Facebook could potentially leverage its extensive web of connections among people and data on relationships - users are able to publicize their relationship status on their profile pages - as well as its massive financial resources, to compete with the incumbents.

In a related move, Facebook Tuesday announced an upcoming feature called "Clear History" that will allow users to see which apps and websites send the network information, delete the data from their account, and prevent Facebook from storing it.
