"Friends in [City]" Facebook Sidebar Module Engages Travelers With Local Friends


Facebook recently began showing a “Friends in [City]” sidebar module to users who are visiting a location other than the current city listed in their profile. It suggests friends to message who live near a user’s temporary location. The module may be designed to incite conversations or meetups between usually distant friends.

By highlighting this value proposition of Facebook, the site can prove to users why its important to maintain a large friend network, helping Facebook to grow.
