The company is now testing its "Facebook Dating" feature internally.
"This product is for US Facebook employees who have opted-in to dogfooding Facebook's new dating product", the message reads. Instead of the traditional blue, it uses a soft, rosy red, with purple illustrations - perhaps an attempt to clearly differentiate it from the social network.
By reverse-engineering the code of Facebook's most recent version of the app, Ms Wong was able to discover hidden features that hadn't yet been turned on. If a mutual attraction is established, you and your virtual date can start messaging each other through WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger.
They were instructed to log in and share "dummy" information to test the app and find any glitches - a process called "dogfooding" - ahead of its launch.
"This is going to be for building real, long-term relationships - not just for hookups", the chief executive said, although it isn't clear how Facebook intends to achieve this. As can be seen in the app flow, you are prompted to set your privacy and also hide your profile from your current set of Facebook friends, a concern that has been highlighted by users on social media ever since Facebook announced its plans.
