Facebook continues to work to expand its tentacles into any area that might involve the social . Several users have been activated with a feature called “City Guide” in their social network app for their iOS device . This is a new feature that suggests places and events in the city you are in .
New Facebook feature in tests, only for certain users
The first to echo this new feature was the TNW medium, which discovered it last year. But now it seems to have reached more users who are echoing it on other social networks . This could indicate a greater deployment and that little by little it may be reaching the totality of Facebook users, although there is no official information.
The new “City Guide” function is the link between Facebook and tourism . It suggests interesting and popular places in the city you are in , as well as indicating whether your friends from the social network have visited it. It also serves to recommend upcoming events or events that your contacts are attending , which could be very useful in finding someone to attend.
Facebook is interested in tourism
There are many other applications that offer this type of information, but without the social appeal that Facebook has. Recommendations or meetings with your friends, no doubt is the extra that this new feature will offer you . Mark Zuckerberg’s social network could become an interactive tour guide when you visit another city, including notifications about attractions and events.
At the moment it seems that “City Guide” is in testing and has only reached a small number of users, have you checked if you have been activated? If so, tell us in the comments!
