How does Facebook Couples work?

Differences between Facebook Couples and Tinder

For starters, the difference between these two is quite noticeable from the start because, if you are an old Facebook user you should know that you can put a lot of information about yourself there, for life if you wanted to instead. On Tinder, just put a few photos and a brief description of what you like to do.

As for the start of the conversation, it's also quite different, since from Tinder you just have to click (like or dislike) in the photos of the people who are there and then do "Match", which means (Coincide).


Unlike (Facebook Couples), it offers as a first step the creation of 20 questions about your area of ​​interest and users can send messages based on the answers, depending on how the first message was, the other person has the decision to answer or not Otherwise, the interested party will no longer be able to send a message.


Another difference of these two "similar" is that Tinder users complain a lot about more fake accounts, instead (Facebook Couples) force users to be real accounts, which is pretty good, on top of that, the Facebook pairs also allow the user to hide in this feature from their Facebook friends in case they don't want to be recognized, and Tinder is quite exposed in this case as anyone looking for you or from your area could see you.

The last most notable difference between these two is that Tinder is used for more casual encounters, or appointments of one day and so on, although with a little luck it can become a little more stable, but "Facebook Couples" is designed to create more stable relationships, as during the entire conversation of the first week no photos or videos so that they can get to know each other a little deeper.
