Facebook Introduces Nearby Friends Feature
Facebook has announced a new feature that is coming to mobile devices for users of the social networking service. The new feature, titled Nearby Friends, allows Facebook users to see when friends are physically near them, allowing individuals to meet up for conversation or events. Nearby Friends can provide a precise location between Facebook users, making it easy to locate others that are close by. While the feature itself must be enabled by both parties in order for it to work properly, Facebook users can set which friends are able to see if they are nearby. The feature is optional and can be turned on and off at any time however.
Nearby Friends will be available for Android and iOS users located in the United States within the coming weeks.
