Founded in 2011 in Dresden, Germany, the social dating app was originally only available as an i Phone app.
Currently, you can now expect to come across any of a whopping 1.49 billion active monthly users and that number does not seem to be stopping.
While not exactly something we'd recommend for finding singles, Facebook has helped spawn many dating sites such as Zoosk.
This is a list of major active social networking websites and excludes dating websites (see Comparison of online dating websites).
For defunct social networking websites, see List of defunct social networking websites.
You can also take part in video chat and play games with other members.
However, to use most of these services you will have to buy credits.
Inconvenience: the site does not have a clear identification for single status.
It's the simple act of expanding the number of people you know by meeting your friends' friends, their friends' friends and so on.
Facebook is about maintaining existing contacts while concentrates on making new contacts - primarily singles, of course.
