Facebook wants its users to share their common connections with a feature that’s currently in testing. The giant social network site will roll out the upcoming feature in a few months. The upcoming change will not only showcase connectionss yet to be made but also the current ones that users are friends with. Though it is a bit strange to see the connection you already share, it can be Facebook’s way to remind users of the connections they have not interacted with for a while.
Once you tap on the “get to know (name’s) friends”, the users will be shown a list of connections, which they could further connect with. Earlier Facebook was using “mutual friends” to entice users towards a new connection. The new option digs deeper to highlight the events you both have attended, pages both liked, places you both have lived at or worked together.
Earlier this year in february, Facebook rolled out Discover people feature which was similar to the change that is yet to be launched by the social-networking site. however innovating its attempt to connect, Facebook is trying its best to connect more and more users in a single thread to built-up its own information pool in order to offer relevant information as per user's’ preference.
In a report by Motherboard, the social-networking giant is all set to bring up tinder-liked functionality into its messenger app so that users can connect directly if they like each other’s profile. It could possibly be a Snapchat like functionality too to help users hang out with the profiles they get interested into. The functionality seems a bit odd for the users as they will have to switch to the main app for viewing user’s profile.
With this change, Facebook is taking another step forward to help users indulge in a friendly encounter. The site site may take a leap from its friendly-encounter innovation towards a dating-oriented app in near future. However, Facebook is ultimate with friends but there are fair possibilities of the social-networking site becoming a dating-oriented application in near future. Things are yet just rolling behind the scenes and it will be great to see some major innovation in the application.
