With Facebook for Dating, you're either out or way too far in

Shares of Match were down 22 percent in afternoon trading.

On Tuesday, CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg said the company is adding a new privacy feature that lets you clear your browsing history on Facebook, including what you've clicked on and which websites you've gone to.

Although analysts said Facebook's initial foray would not likely be a threat to established dating sites - some of which are highly specialized to cater to specific groups - its heft and deep pockets makes it a concern over the long term to the smaller companies.

The company said it would take "a few months" to build the feature.

The precise magnitude and location of the most-severe weather remains questionable due to the evolution of storms overnight. North Dakota recognizes this week as Severe Summer Weather Awareness Week - a reminder that severe weather is not far away.

The new Facebook dating feature news comes as the company grapples with the aftermath of a massive data breach that impacted tens of millions of users and an onslaught of criticism for how it handled their personal data. "We believe Facebook users are likely to be somewhat skeptical of using Facebook for dating given recent privacy concerns", analysts at Raymond James wrote in a research note.

On the dating service, people will be able to browse events and groups related to their interests, such as upcoming concerts or groups for runners.

But over a year later - and four years after Facebook's $3 billion purchase of virtual reality company Oculus in 2014 - we've arrived at the next F8 developer conference, and it feels like no one is using Facebook Spaces.

A United Kingdom parliamentary inquiry has again called on Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg to appear in Westminster for questioning after an appearance by his chief technology officer at a public session last week still was deemed "unsatisfactory".

Senate approves Pompeo as US Secretary of State
Six Democrats and one Independent voted to confirm Pompeo: Heitkamp, Donnelly, Manchin, McCaskill, Jones, Nelson, and King (I). Trump added that the two spoke for more than an hour and that there were "incredible pictures of the two talking and meeting".

Although many users commented that they are looking forward to the introduction of Clear History, it appears that most focused mainly on the final paragraph of Zuckerberg's statement, where he said that he "didn't have clear enough answers" when he testified before Congress last month following the Cambridge Analytica controversy.

Facebook assures the dating profile won't be visible to your Facebook friends, nor will it show up in places like the News Feed. The Oculus Go, a $199 stand-alone headset, is now available for sale.

Users will also have the option to turn off Facebook's ability to store any more of this information in the future.

Like an old flame wrecking a first date, Facebook Inc burst in on the matchmaking scene on Tuesday and sent investors in rival apps on a panicked rush for the door.

Williams was angry about his girlfriend's arrest and he'd told a friend that "as of tomorrow, I'll be a fugitive". Cole's death marks the first time a ME police officer was shot and killed in the line of duty in almost 30 years.

There's also a separate inbox for dating messages that doesn't allow photos, Facebook Chief Product Officer Chris Cox said in his own presentation.
