Facebook quietly introduces new mobile feature ''Find Friends Nearby'

Facebook has quietly introduced a new feature for its iOS and Android apps, allowing users to find fellow Facebook users who are in close vicinity.
Find Friends Nearby will let you locate Facebook users depending on where they are at the moment, showing off a list based on geolocation data. For users to actually show up on the list, they will need to check out the very same page at the same time you are, which means it is very easy to miss someone who might just be in the Starbucks a block down simply because he/she did not bother to check out the “Find Friends Nearby” segment. We do look forward to hear more from Facebook concerning this feature.

The feature has not been officially announced, but is live and working on Facebook's website and through its iOS and Android applications. The creator of the feature, Ryan Patterson, says in a comment on TechCrunch that it's ideal for situations where you're "out with a group of people whom you've recently met and want to stay in contact with."
The service comes on the heels of Facebook’s acquisition two months ago of Glancee, developer of a technology called Friendshake that allows users to find new friends nearby, according to siliconrepublic.com

The idea of the new service, available via both the mobile web and as a URL on your computer’s web browser, is to help Facebook users grow their network of friends.
