Facebook Just Added An Awesome Feature To Its Application
The social media giant Facebook has not stopped launching updates and introducing new features to its platform during the last months, such as Ephemeral Stories or the possibility of searching for free WiFi, among other features. Now, the social network of Mark Zuckerberg wants to land in the tourism sector with a new function: City Guides.
This new option will be located in the More menu of the Facebook app for mobile devices, where other platform services such as Weather, Friends Nearby, Nearby places or Search WiFi are located. When you click on the corresponding section, the user accesses the list of available travel guides, and in each city, you can see the friends who have visited.
This new feature, located in the More section of the application, will give users a list of cities and, in it, a list of the friends who visited it, along with several recommendations of interesting places to visit and things to do, such as restaurants, hotels, Tourist points and other highlights.
According to a Facebook spokesperson, “we are testing a redesigned interface of the city’s pages. This content already exists on Facebook, and during this test, we centralize the information to know the city in a way that is more personalized and relevant to users. So, this new feature can help people get to know their city better.”
Apparently, tests of Facebook’s new travel guide functionality started last year, but so far they had not been activated. Its deployment has started recently for some users in the United States and is not yet available in India. Moreover, the social network giant Facebook has not confirmed yet that when it will reach other countries, but it may do so soon, so stay tuned for updates to the app.
