"If we don't work on this, the world isn't moving in this direction by itself", he said. "We need to do more to keep people safe, and we will", but he added that Facebook's primary goal is to "bring people together". "What I learned this year is we have to take a broader view of our responsibility".

In the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Facebook today announced plans to build a feature that will let you clear your history. There are 200 million people who have marked themselves as single on Facebook, he said.

The dating app will "be for building real, long-term relationships - not just for hookups", Zuckerberg said, according to a Bloomberg report.

The audience, filled with app developers whose own businesses were rocked by the Cambridge Analytica scandal and the subsequent steps Facebook took to rebuild trust with users, seemed to grow more friendly over the course of the keynote, which Zuckerberg topped off as if he were barnstorming Iowa to raise his poll numbers. "Your friends aren't going to see this". IAC/InterActiveCorp (IAC), which is the majority owner of Match, was down 12%. Instead, he said, Facebook will suggest possible dating prospects.

Shares of the company plummeted more than 9% immediately following CEO Mark Zuckerberg's comments at Facebook's F8 conference in California on Tuesday afternoon.

Facebook is launching a dating feature. She also previewed the new group calling feature and stickers. It could be that Facebook has something brand new in mind. The Messenger app's layout has been redesigned, so that it looks cleaner.

It will be available first in English and Spanish, initially trialling in the US.

Taking on a more somber and forceful tone than in previous years, Zuckerberg on Tuesday tried to bolster Facebook's commitment to privacy and building community. An early example is Sephora, which has new makeup AR overlays so that users can, say, try on blue eye shadow without leaving the house. Zuckerberg announced Tuesday that app reviews were open again. If Facebook offered a dating service, it would essentially be eliminating the middleman.

"Our goal here isn't to be hard", said Archibong.

"I know a lot of you are going to have questions about this".

The annual conference began as a way for Facebook to announce major initiatives, such as its technology to connect users' accounts with websites around the web, as well as revamped designs for users' profile pages. Those include how much of the company's revenue comes from Myanmar and if there was any link between the US elections and the 2017 purge of fake accounts. He promised that Facebook was making "good promise" on fighting fake news, but also admitted that some of these problems could never really be solved.

It also has new sharing experiences including Oculus Venues, a way to experience live concerts and events in virtual reality. The platform is still around and gaining new features.

The company is also continuing to expand its augmented reality offerings, like 3D photos. The feature will be called "Clear History". You may have to sign back into dozens of websites, you may have to reconfigure some things.

Zuckerberg testified before Congress last month for about 10 hours over two days. Interested users will have to opt in, create a profile (which won't be visible to friends) and browse other users who've opted in.
