Facebook’s new dating feature is live in the United States.

Facebook’s dating feature made its U.S. debut Thursday, after appearing in several other countries in the year since it was announced.

On Twitter, the overwhelming response was not hope and excitement over Facebook’s ability to introduce you to your soul mate but dread and skepticism over the social network’s expansion into such an intimate endeavor. After all, Facebook doesn’t have a good reputation when it comes to keeping people’s data private — and dating is an intensely personal pursuit.
