Facebook wants you to share more

Facebook is one of the most consistently evolving social media networks in the marketplace today.  To some, that may be to a fault, but Facebook is looking to connect you even more to your friends.

In an update to the iOS app that is rolling out today, Facebook will be debuting a new feature that shows relevant posts from your friends when you check in at certain places.  The thought is to more interactively connect users through things like travel plans or movie watching experiences.

The feature, called surface cards, will appear after a user updates their status and will show a few relevant posts at once.

For example checking in at a restaurant may prompt the cards to display friend who have eaten there, where as listening to a certain song will show you friends who also like similar music.


While the update is only available for iOS at this time, the goal is to more completely connect friends.  The cards will not affect privacy settings however, and will only share previously shared information with friends.
