Facebook is rolling out updated to 'Nearby' in the Facebook for iOS and Android apps that will allow users easily discover new places their friends like.
Through the app menu, you can open the tab to find local spots your friends have recommended, checked into, or liked. If you're looking for a place to eat, you can 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.
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.
In the future, Facebook also plans to add places info from third party services, such as Instagram.
This update will be available later today.
