Facebook has started internal testing of its dating app

Brownie Bytes has some questions

Is “OldBook” trying to become relevant with younger audiences again?

Or is it just going to get a bunch of creepy divorced people hooking up – or promoting divorce among sneaky spouses?

This is not meant for dating your coworkers.”

Facebook asked employees to use fake data for their dating profiles, and plans to delete all data before the public launch. “Dogfooding this product is completely voluntary and has no impact on your employment,” a screenshot reads, adding that the product is confidential.
