I have sent a message to Mr Mark Zuckerburg on 29 April 2018 - Thank you Mr Mark Zuckerburg and Priscilla Chan. I am Jyothi KG (facebook.com/jyothi.fashiondesigner). I have used #FacebookMatrimony for my marriage purpose and my post is viral now in Kerala, India through leading online media in Malayalam. Before this, my friend Mr Ranjish Manjeri (facebook.com/ranjishmanjeri) has been introduced #FacebookMatrimony by someone's advice and it became viral through media in Kerala and he got married with the help of #FacebookMatrimony. His marriage was on 18 April 2018.
Mr Mark please consider my request and give a facility to select grooms and brides with the search option in the country, state, district, name, gender, education, age, profession and religion base. #FacebookMatrimony will help gents and ladies to escape from the prison of the horoscope, castes, luxury, lavishness etc. #FacebookMatrimony will help us to select one's life partner easily with family support. #FacebookMatrimony will help us to find our life partner directly and it will end the exploitation by matrimonial sites and brokers. Once again Thanks."
