Facebook to introduce fresh attributes with a motive to enhance user connections


2017-02-06 Silicon Review

The most popular social networking giant ‘Facebook’ is collecting laurels by  releasing a new networking feature on its mobile Android and iOS apps, designed to facilitate connections between people who aren't already Facebook friends.

The all new fresh feature, appropriately dubbed "Discover People," encourages users to introduce themselves by updating their profile, then scroll through a list of upcoming events to see who else may also be going, as well as browse through lists of people in their city or who share the same employer.

However, according to Phone Arena, while "Discover People" is being promoted as ‘new', it is essentially a more clear-cut way of straining information which is already readily available via the social platform already as only details made publicly available on profiles is shown, and users already have the option to see who's attending or interested in specific events by visiting the event's Facebook page.

The section, can be used for both personal and business networking for theory , has been placed in the navigation section below Friends, Events, Groups, Nearby Places, and other options and is currently in the process of being rolled out to Facebook users across the globe.
