After all, Facebook already lets you "poke" people, whatever that means, and lets you broadcast your relationship status. "Security isn't a problem that you ever fully solve".

It was a critical speech for the 33-year-old Facebook chief, coming off a crushing wave of negativity that hardened doubts about his intentions and left lasting damage to his company's reputation.

Dating company Match Group, which owns several services like Tinder and OKCupid, and its parent company IAC both saw its stocks sink on news of the features.

Mr Zuckerberg said more than 200 million people on Facebook list themselves as single and that the new platform would let them connect with people outside of their friends list.

The potential matches will be recommended based on dating preferences, things in common and mutual friends, the company said. The photos are then placed in the relevant locations, and users can walk around and visit the room, even bringing in friends and family.

It's not clear just how long it will take Facebook to bring Clear History to all of its users, but the company will nearly certainly be working to get it out the door as quickly as possible in the face of increasing criticism and scrutiny of its privacy policies.

The dating service functionality will reportedly go into testing later this year, so details are sparse beyond what Zuckerberg teased at the F8 keynote. The issue was resolved but it was unclear exactly which Facebook updates caused the issues for Tinder.
