Discover New Places With Facebook’s New Nearby App [Download NOW]

Today Facebook is announcing updates to Nearby in the Facebook for iOS and Android apps that make it easy to discover new places your friends like.


Find New Places
From the app menu, open the tab to find local spots your friends have recommended, checked into, or liked. If you’re looking for a place to eat, choose a category like Restaurants to see what’s nearby. When you find a place that looks interesting, tap to see info like friends who’ve been there and business hours.


Share Places with Friends
In addition to discovering new places to visit, you can share what you think by rating or recommending places to your friends. Your own suggestions become more personalized the more you and your friends rate, recommend, and check into places.


Just the beginning
This is an early release and there’s lots more to do. Results will get better the more people use Nearby, and Facebook will continue to improve it based on feedback. They also  also plan to add places info from third party services in the near future.

How to get the update
This update will be available later today. Get the latest Facebook app for iPhone or Android to try it out. Learn more on Facebook Studio or the Help Center.
