With more than 2 billion active users around the world, Facebook is constantly testing new features and rolling out updates one after another. Facebook’s ‘things in common’ feature is just another addition to the list.
With an aim to allow users to have ‘meaningful conversations’ with strangers, the feature will figure out things that a user may have in common with another user and present it to the user in the form of a label.
This will help you connect with new people, and perhaps make new friends. However, as you may expect, there are concerns regarding user privacy.
A spokeswoman from Facebook was quoted by CNET saying,
“Knowing shared things in common helps people connect”
The feature, currently under beta-testing, has already created quite a buzz for what it is capable of. Finding a common link with a stranger definitely gives way to further conversation and allows one to make a bond.
