Facebook launches Discover Friends tool

3 February 2017

Facebook is rolling out a new tool designed to help users make new friends, as noted in an article from TechCrunch.

Similar to the profile suggestion features found on Twitter and LinkedIn, Facebook’s Discover Friends suggests profiles based on things users have in common, such as living in the same city or belonging to the same Facebook groups.

The Discover Friends tool is located in the ‘More’ tab on the Facebook mobile app, and tapping on the tool will bring up a selection of profiles users can swipe through to connect.

Facebook is currently rolling out Discover Friends and the tool will soon available to all iOS and Android users.
