Facebook’s new ‘Secret Crush’ isn’t cute, it’s creepy – BGR
If you've ever wanted to let Facebook know who your romantic crush is -- and no, "poking" doesn't count -- soon you'll have the chance to do just that. Today, at its F8 developers conference, the company announced Secret Crush, a new feature that will let you use Facebook Dating to express interest in someone from your friends on the site. Facebook says that users have told it they believe there's an opportunity to explore romances within their own extended circle of friends on Facebook, and that's how the idea for Secret Crush came to be. The feature will let you select from up to nine Facebook friends who you may be interested in, and if they're on the Dating service, they'll get a notification letting them know someone has a crush on them. Simple enough, but the feeling has to be mutual, of course.
