Facebook announces new feature, Recommendations

Fcebook has announced a new feature that will enable users to interact further with their network of friends and local businesses.
Launching in the US from Wednesday, one of the new features will enable users to ask for and share advice on what to see, where to go, and what to do with the new 'Recommendations' tool.
Users can turn on Recommendations when they write a Facebook post looking for advice on local places or services, so friends can then comment on the post with suggestions. Facebook will map out and save friend's recommendations in one place for easy-to-use access.
Once users have found what they want to do, thanks to a little help from their friends, Facebook then wants to make it easier to interact with local businesses, with another new feature enabling users to order food, request an appointment, get a quote, or buy tickets to movies and events straight from businesses' Facebook pages.
The Events bookmark has also had a revamp, and users can now catch up on the latest event activity from friends and browse event recommendations based on what's popular with friends or events that users have been interested in in the past.
This new version of the Events dashboard will become available in the US in the coming weeks, with Facebook also adding that more features would also be rolled out in the coming months.
