19 October 2016, USA :
People come to Facebook every day to connect and share experiences with friends and family. We share the great places we go and we ask our friends for advice when we need help getting things done.
Today Facebook is introducing a variety of new features that help you use those connections to discover new things in the world around you, decide what to do or where to go, and connect with local businesses in easier and faster ways.
When you write a Facebook post looking for advice on local places or services, you’ll have the option to turn on Recommendations for that post. If you turn on the feature, your friends can comment on your post with suggestions, and you’ll see all of them mapped out and saved in one place. You can also go to your Recommendations bookmark on Facebook to ask a new question or help your friends.
You can easily discover local events on Facebook, it is a great way to find events happening around you and now it’s even easier to discover new things to do with friends. To make exploring events even better, It has revamped the Events bookmark.
You can also Order food, Request an appointment, Get a quote and Get tickets to movies and events from the respective Facebook page.
FB is starting to roll out these initial experiences in the US today. This is the first step, and over the coming months it’ll be launching even more new features that will make it easier to get things done, make confident decisions and communicate directly with businesses on your time and terms.
