Facebook scraps Find Friends Nearby app after one day


Facebook Find Friends Nearby Mobile App

Facebook has pulled a new application designed to help users make friends in their areas. The new Find Friends Nearby application that uses a device’s GPS capabilities to find others who are logged into Facebook and are living or working nearby. The company hasn’t yet given any reason that it took the app down. Before it was removed, users could go to the URL http://fb.com/ffn to see a list of people nearby who currently had the page open. As TechCrunch noted in its story on the new app, “the service comes a little under two months after Facebook announced the acquisition of Glancee, a mobile app that helps users discover people near them with similar interests, whose three founders have now joined Facebook and closed down their app.”
