    Making Friends on Facebook® becomes easy with Find Friends Nearby

    Facebook lately has created a new feature called Find Friends Nearby, earlier code-named Friendshake, for Android and iOS-based devices. Yet to be announced officially, this latest feature will let you find out friends who are geographically nearby.
     
    Basically, Find Friends Nearby feature takes you to a page wherein you can spot other people within/near your location and who are browsing the Find Friends Nearby page. For instance, if you and someone you recently met want to be friends, both of you can simply go to the Find Friends Nearby page, unlike the traditional way of typing and searching each other’s name.
     
    While Find Friends Nearby simplifies the process of befriending with someone near you, conversely, it has privacy risk too. This feature will not just give personal details of potential friends nearby; by simply leaving Find Friends Nearby page open you can also spot anyone else within your vicinity.
     

    Apple® to cut Google™ Maps from its platform

    Apple is all set to replace the Google Maps with its own navigation app from the next versions of its iPhone, iPad, and iPod devices that run on iOS platform. According to several media reports, the iPhone-maker is going to completely remove Google Maps from its platform and will instead use its own mapping data.

    Google has provided the back-end data to Google Maps on the iPhone since it was introduced in 2007. Apple has acquired a handful of mapping companies, including Poly9, C3 Technologies, and Placebase during the last several years. Among all these mapping companies, C3 Technologies is noteworthy because of its 3-D mapping technology.

    Look and feel of the new navigation app

    It is being rumored that the new navigation app for iOS will be a complete re-write of the code, though the overall look and feel of the app will remain same. Apple will even revise the app logo by changing the colors to represent that fact that it has been re-written.

    The new Apple-made navigation application is likely be unveiled at the upcoming WorldWide Developers Conference that Apple is holding in June. The conference has been the launch platform for several new versions of iOS.
