Meta has announced that they are bringing their age verification tools to Facebook Dating. Initially they used these tools earlier in June 2022 on Instagram to verify the age of Instagram users and they say that this has been successful so they are bringing it as a natural progression to their next important product that could benefit from this which is Facebook Dating. So this age verification will make sure that the users are 18 and above to start using this feature and they will use Video Selfie as one of those tools and the other is uploading the ID to verify the age.
