Facebook today announced a new feature that will let people share their location with their friends. The tool, called Nearby Friends, is opt-in and needs to be turned on by users. It can be turned off at any time. Users will be able to share their location with all their friends, just close friends, or with specific lists of people. In order to see friends who are nearby, other users will need to have it on and share their location, too. The feature lets people share their exact location for a defined period of time, which is then visible on a map in order to make the person easy to find. Facebook suggests Nearby Friends be used by people to meet up when near one another. Nearby Friends will be added to the Android and iOS apps in the coming weeks.

This could take facebook stalking to a whole new level...

This could really blur the line between facebook stalking and real stalking.

Nerdy friends

When I glanced at the tweet, I thought it said "nerdy" friends. LOL!

At any rate, this might be fun to try out with friends in the future.
Yea, great way to stalk the ones that won't love you..
