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.
