If users don’t have any idea about a new chat window of a person whose name they are not familiar with, they will no longer have to ask them about their identity. According to Techcrunch, With the latest feature in Facebook Messenger, they will get some hints before about the person who wants to converse with them.
The new update will incorporate details of users such as their location, current job, and other relevant information. The update is available to Facebook users based in India, France, the US, and the UK. The update is also up for both iOS and Android.
For instance, if you are a Manchester United fan and keep on posting stuff on its Official page. So if any relevant person from the same page wants to talk to you, the reference will appear in front of you, so that you can start conversation with them and discuss about the latest that you’ve heard about the team. This further increases the probability that people will respond to others. Apart from this, if someone is new in your college and wants to know a few details on a course, you can help them familiarize with the course structure.
The new feature will not violate the privacy settings and would only show others the information that you have made public. It comes after the “Hello” feature that was released by Facebook, so that you may know the relevant details of the person on the other side of the phone, and block them if they are a spammer. Such features show that how the social media giant wants to expand your social circle by connecting you to people who have the same interests or are in the same profession or locality as you. With these services, it wants to stay competitive with other networks such as LinkedIn.
