Learn About Facebook's Nearby Friends

/// Learn About Facebook’s Nearby Friends

April 18, 2014  |  Blog

Some people blame social media for causing people to only hang out virtually, not in real time. But TechCrunch recently reported on a Facebook feature that could actually help friends connect in real life.

The new service is called Nearby Friends, and it will show your location to people on your friends list who are nearby. You need to opt in to use this tool, and you will only see the locations of other friends who have also opted in. Plus, people will only see your exact location when you choose to send it to them, making it easy for you to set up spontaneous hangouts with people who happen to be within a few miles of you at the moment.

Do you think you will take advantage of Nearby Friends on Facebook? Find out more about it at TechCrunch.
