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.

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.
