For quick access to the profiles you like, you can add them to your favorites, for which there is a separate tab “Interest” in the menu. There are no different settings in the application, all information about the profile is pulled from the page in Facebook. From there, you can also take photos for the profile. For fans of personal correspondence there is a chat room, where you can flirt without restrictions.
