Zuckerberg said the Dating feature would be opt-in (disabled) by default, not available for quick hook-ups, but instead for configured for building meaningful relationships only.

For example, one of these settings is that Facebook Dating will use a text-only instant messaging service that won't support image sharing or video calls to prevent harassment or inappropriate images.

Cox said this instant messaging client will work separately from the native Facebook Messenger client and Whats App service.
