We have heard in the past rumors that Facebook could be looking to develop their own dating app/feature. Early screenshots of it have just leaked online.

The company had said it was planning on including a dating feature in its app back in May, when CEO Mark Zuckerberg repeated the company's focus on "meaningful relationships" at the company's developer conference. Unfortunately for Wong, it seems to be tested internally because while she could access the signup screen, she could not go further as it appears that Facebook isn't activating non-employee Dating profiles for now.

MANILA, Philippines - Facebook is reportedly testing a couple of new features that could soon be added to the platform - a dating service and a "Create" button.

The company is now testing its "Facebook Dating" feature internally.

Chief among Benitez's concerns is the lack of signings this summer, with the Tyneside club only managing to bring in three new faces in the current transfer window.

'The goal for this dogfooding is to test the end-to-end product experience for bugs and confusing user interface, ' the terms and conditions state. "This is not meant for dating your co-workers", reads the screenshot.

Facebook also specified to its employees that testing the product is completely voluntary and has no impact on their employment.

Would-be users can then decide their privacy settings: Your Facebook friends won't be able to see your dating profile, and users can decide whether or not they want to allow anyone with mutual friends to see it. Instead of the traditional blue, it uses a soft, rosy red, with purple illustrations - perhaps an attempt to clearly differentiate it from the social network. Facebook hasn't announced a release date for the dating app.

They were instructed to log in and share "dummy" information to test the app and find any glitches - a process called "dogfooding" - ahead of its launch.
