Facebook wants to help you make more friends.
The social media giant is testing out a new feature on mobile called "Discover People," which encourages users to introduce themselves to people they don't actually know, reports Tech Crunch.
The tool, which has only been released to some iOS and Android users so far, allows you to make updates to your profile, including the bio and photo sections. It then let's you scroll through a list of upcoming events to see who else may also be going, and when you tap into one of these, you can swipe through the profiles of the people attending.
And there's more. There are also ways to track down people living in your area and people who work at the same company as you. As the aim is to make "new connections," you won't be able to see the profiles of those you are already friends with on Facebook, and only public information will appear on the profiles that pop up.
Still, it's likely this new feature will raise some concerns around privacy. Last year, the network was criticised for reducing the number of high-tier privacy settings and users have recently been warned about Facebook cloning - a tactic used by hackers who set up a fake account to approach your friends and family online.
However, Facebook says it's focused on making communication "easier".
"Too often, it's hard to learn more about people around you, whether it is upon starting a new job, joining a new group, deciding if you want to attend an event, or moving to a new place," a spokesperson explained. "To make it easier, we're starting to roll out a new bookmark in the More menu called 'Discover People' that can help you discover more about people you have things in common with by browsing through profile cards of people in your community."
