The latest feature of Facebook that aids the users to find out the people who are nearby them is claimed to be a stolen concept by the company which offers the same service since last year.
Friendthem’s chief executive has said that his corporation has offered the service at first of showing its users the people who are around them basing on the geological location. He claims of discussing this concept with the company executive last year.
On the other hand, the engineer of Facebook, Ryan Patterson, claims that this feature was initiated at the hackathon as the ‘Friendshake’. He also added that perhaps Friendshake has stolen the trademarked idea of Friendthem.
The latest feature, which was spotted first by the tech blog named TechCrunch, was quietly launched yesterday on the mobile application of Facebook. Basing on the location, this feature alerts you of the other users of Facebook who are nearby.
