Facebook Launches “Nearby Friends” With Opt-In Real-Time Location Sharing To Help You Meet Up | TechCrunch


So, we are finally getting to a point that we don’t have to rely on the features of iOS to be able to get proximity information of our nearby friends. After all, not everyone is using an iOS device so being imprisoned by that notion for being able to see if your friends, family, and acquaintances are nearby is a thing of the past. It’s becoming more universal with this feature of Facebook.

I’m eager to see how well this works and how well it’s practicality is realized.
