Want to get rid of the Dating icon shortcut tab on Facebook? Try this.


Facebook’s relatively recent entry into the digital dating market uses the platform’s extensive reach to match you with potential partners from your local area. Facebook Dating is available from within the Facebook mobile app and accessible from the main menu or via the Dating tab.

In that case, here’s how to delete the Dating shortcut from your daily FB view.
