Facebook adds Find Friends Nearby using GPS

Facebook has integrated a new feature into its mobile apps and website, which allows users to spot nearby pals, or easily make friends with people they’ve just met.The Find Friends Nearby page uses GPS coordinates and shows other people currently visiting that ‘meeting room,’ whether you’re already friends with them or not. Non-friends will be listed in an ‘Others’ section.Of course there’s the immediate assumption that the tool could be used for people to stalk random revellers in bars, but anyone on the Find Friends Nearby page is looking to be found anyway.The feature has not been officially launched yet, but TechCrunch reports that it’s available to use for those seeking it out.
