If you think that the Facebook has become dull, think again. In a new set of reports, the social media giant is experimenting with a new project that will connect the user with a stranger on the Facebook itself. The new move is anticipated to bring more fun on the platform and spice things up.

The new feature will work with the users’ who have something in common like commenting on a common friends' posts or pictures. As per a CNET report, the idea behind the new feature is to bring along the people who have something in common. The related thing can be the common public Facebook group, same working space, neighboring society, or the same educational institution. If anything of this sort matches, your name will pop up along with the other person’s name. And if interested, the mutual users’ can take the conversation forward.

At the first go, the idea may seem very exciting to many of you, but not to forget, it will also spark a debate of privacy and safety on the social media platform. The Facebook has earlier came under severe criticism by the people and industry experts on various occasions, especially the Cambridge Analytica scam. So, keeping such an aspect at the back of their mind, the Facebook team might come up with something more secure and meaningful.

If reports are to be believed, the Facebook will only reflect that information to the other people which the user have set as “Public,” and can be visible to everyone. The information which will be set only for friends will not be reflected to the strangers on the Facebook.

Another facet that Facebook might be looking into remains the fact that people generally don’t indulge in random conversation and due to this, they might be missing on some significant connections from their own community or group. Therefore, the new feature from Facebook is expected to bring out invisible connections which might have gone unnoticed by the users.

"Knowing shared things in common helps people connect," Facebook told CNET. "We're testing adding a 'things in common' label that will appear above comments from people who you're not friends with, but you might have something in common with."

Facebook has put this feature on a testing phase and has rolled out to a very selected number of users in the United States.
