Facebook is explore on how a couple could get more romantic

Facebook is testing a video speed-dating app called Sparked that is being developed by the company's NPE Team. For those unaware, speed dating is an organized social activity in which people seeking romantic relationships have a series of short conversations with potential partners in order to determine whether there is mutual interest.


The app will seemingly cycle people through speed video dates that last four minutes. If both the users have a good time, they can schedule a second date that lasts 10 minutes. The video speed-dating app was spotted by The Verge. The webpage, which was live for a very brief period, described the app as ‘video dating with kind people.'


These speed video dates are said to last for four minutes each, and users will go through a cycle of dates in each event. It is unclear how many video dates one person will go through per event. If these daters connect in the first four minutes, they will be allowed to go on a second video date, which will last for 10 minutes. After that, Sparked will reportedly advice users to exchange contact info to stay in touch outside of the platform.


The app, developed by Facebook’s New Product Experimentation (NPE) Team, requires a Facebook profile to create an account. Sparked is free to use and requires participants to agree to being kind, treating the platform as a safe space and to show up for dates.


Sparked promises no public profiles need to be made, no swiping will be required, and no unnecessary or creepy DMs. Sparked is a work in progress, Facebook told The Verge, calling it an ‘early experiment'.
