Friendshake Is Facebook’s New Way to "Friend" the People Around You
A new Facebook feature has been made publicly available with not so much as an announcement. Friendshake uses your phone's GPS to find the people around you on Facebook and easily add them as "Friends." It's half cool, half freaky.
Ostensibly, Friendshake is a way to quickly and easily Friend Request someone you meet out at, say, a concert. If you go to http://fb.com/ffn from your phone's browser and log in to your Facebook account, you will see everybody else who is also on that page within a certain radius of you (it uses your phone's GPS). It also reportedly works in Facebook's iOS app by going to Menu > Apps > Find friends > Other Tools > Find Friends Nearby.
