Facebook has been a medium to connect with friends and family located across the world. Many a times, we use this social networking platform to seek advice on various things that we do in day to day life. For instance: To know about a good place that we should visit next, a salon to attain perfect hair style, a good place to relish food, etc. But now Facebook is trying to make your life even more simpler by introducing new tool that organizes all those recommendations in one place.
According to a blog post on this social networking platform, “When you write a Facebook post looking for advice on local places or services, you’ll have the option to turn on Recommendations for that post. If you turn on the feature, your friends can comment on your post with suggestions, and you’ll see all of them mapped out and saved in one place.
It also added, “You can also go to your Recommendations bookmark on Facebook to ask a new question or help your friends.”
Using these new features, you can order food, request an appointment, get a quote from businesses, book tickets to movies and events. Wondering how? Well, it’s quite simple. For ordering food, you can simply click “Start Order” on any restaurant’s Facebook Page that uses Delivery.com or Slice. For local businesses that require you to book an appointment, such as spas and salons, you can now request a time via the business’ Facebook Page and view their entire slate of services and offerings. They’ll then get back to you on Messenger to confirm your appointment. Apart from these two services, some local business Pages will now have a “Get Quote” button at the top that allows you to easily and quickly request a quote from the business.
Besides these facilities, Facebook’s new tool also allows you to buy movie tickets straight from their Facebook Pages via Fandango. “In partnership with Ticketmaster and Eventbrite, we’re also making it possible for people to get tickets to other events — free or paid — directly from the event page on Facebook,” the official blog revealed.
However, this service will be initially launched in the US. Let’s wait and watch by when these tools will make way in India. Stay tuned!
