Facebook begins internal testing of dating app

Facebook is currently testing its own in-app dating platform through its employees.

The Verge reported Facebook confirmed its testing the product within the app, but would not disclose any further details.

Screenshots posted by Twiter user @wongmjane showed more info on the sign-up process, including options to specify gender, location and which genders you're interested in.

Facebook's launch of a dating service would have a significant impact on the growing market. 

Stock price for Match Group, which owns popular dating apps OKCupid and Tinder, took a 17 percent hit when Facebook Dating was announced.
