Just when the Facebook Dating was announced stocks of other dating sites like Tinder plunged down by 17 percent. Early screenshots of it have just leaked online.

Now undergoing internal testing with employees, Facebook Dating is looking to be a feature of Facebook rather than a standalone app.

The company wouldn't say whether these pics are the real deal, although it did confirm it's testing Facebook Dating internally.

The company is now testing its "Facebook Dating" feature internally. The objective for this dogfooding is to test the end-to-end product experience for bugs and confusing UI. This means that things like features, launch date, and more is still anyone's guess.

Facebook asked their employees to use fake data for their dating profiles and promised to delete them all before the product's launch.

"Dogfooding this product is completely voluntary and has no impact on your employment", the screenshot further read, adding that the product is confidential.

From Wong's photos, it looks like the app will let you prevent your current Facebook friends from seeing your dating profile, thus avoiding potential embarrassment. According to the social media network, it's being tested by employees before it will be released for public use.

Another discovery made by Wong is that Facebook is apparently testing a dating feature called "Conversation Starters", which will help break the ice with your matches.

"We have designed this with privacy and safety in mind from the beginning. Your friends aren't going to see your profile, and you're only going to be suggested to people who are not your friends". However, what you do within the dating feature will not be shown to your friends.
