Facebook Lets You Know When Your Friends Are Nearby

What do you do when you find yourself with a friend while you walk down the street? You pretend to receive a very important phone call and give you half a turn and run or pick up the hand slightly to greet them? If you identify with this second case than with the first, perhaps interest you changes in the function of Close friends that you are coming on Facebook.

Two years ago, Facebook has the function of close friends. Once activated (it is optional), receive occasional notifications from where are your friends. Although you can choose who can see your location, Facebook showed fairly accurately on the map where were you, which was a little pretty creepy. This changes now, where the location is closest, without map, and with the possibility of send greetings your friends in the vicinity.

What are close friends

Let’s start with the basics. Close friends is a function of Facebook similar to similar initiatives such as the old Google Latitude. Simply allow all or some of your friends know where you are with the intention of knowing when you are potentially “on the side” and you have not heard.

In the case of Facebook, this function tells you the approximate your friends, always and when location both you and they have activated the function. I.e., even if you share your location with all your friends, only those who share their location also will know where you are.

More prominence

Facebook is now giving more prominence to the role of close friends, both the web application and the client for Android. What was formerly a fairly hidden option is now in the top of Facebook contacts bar.

Interestingly, this information is not displayed in the list of Facebook Messenger contacts, and is that we never achieve probably find out the reason for contacts on Facebook panel, if by itself can not send messages. Zuckerberg things.

Best regards

On the other hand, the hand next to any of your friends icon allows you to send them a greeting. This icon only appears in those friends who are relatively close to you. Not necessarily around the corner, but the less if in the same city.

The press is a notification sent the other person. Notification basically says that “X person is close and has sent you a greeting.” So, from now on Facebook can send me gusta, touch (Yes, still exist) and greetings. If you repent, you can press it again to cancel the greeting. It takes a couple of seconds to get to the other person, so you have a small margin.
