Facebook has always decided that you want to know when someone has a secret crush on you (#tbt to poking). At its annual developer conference on Tuesday, the company announced another way to find potential love amongst a sea of fellow Facebookers.
Facebook Dating is a feature that's already available in several countries, but won't be launching in the U.S. until later this year. But now we know that with Dating comes a feature called Secret Crush, where you can choose up to nine friends you have crushes on. If your crush has opted into Facebook Dating, they'll receive a notification that a friend has a crush on them. If they also add you as a Secret Crush, you'll both be notified and will be able to chat via Messenger.
So, basically you'll get a heads up that someone you know has a crush on you, but the only way to find out is to pick the people you have crushes on too and hope for the best.
