Facebook has a new way for friends to find each other—in the real world, said Kurt Wagner The social network announced a new feature last week, called Nearby Friends, which allows the company’s mobile app users to share their location and see which of their friends are nearby. The feature “uses the geolocation technology in your smartphone to determine when you are close to one of your Facebook friends” and can send alerts that will notify users when those friends are nearby. If you’re worried about privacy, don’t be. “The new feature is opt-in, meaning you’ll need to activate it within the app, should you choose to participate.” Those who decide not to opt in “won’t be affected in any way and will not share with or receive any location information from others on the platform.”
