You know that Facebook friend you've secretly been wanting to ask out for months? Well, now Facebook is offering a way to find out if they like you, too. In a statement at the annual F8 developer conference on Tuesday, the social media platform announced that it's taking Facebook Dating to a whole new level with Secret Crush, a dating feature that encourages you to match with your friends.
As part of Facebook Dating — previously only available in Colombia, Thailand, Canada, Argentina, and Mexico — Secret Crush will now also be available in 14 new countries: the Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Laos, Brazil, Peru, Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Uruguay, Guyana, and Suriname.
Create a profile, which doesn't show up on any other parts of Facebook, and the site will use your dating preferences and interests to pair you with the people who are most right for you. The best part? If your crush hasn't opted into Dating, chooses not to create a Secret Crush list, or doesn't put you on their list, no one will know that you've put their name on your list. So there's nothing to be embarrassed about if the feeling isn't mutual. Keep reading for a full breakdown on how to use Secret Crush.
