Last year, Facebook launched a standalone app called Event, in which a special calendar was given. It contained information about the events surrounding the city. But this app was flopped. It is now Facebook has relaunched it as ‘Local’ for Android and IOS Devices.
According to the news from the TechCrunch, this will help Facebook users to know the details and reviews related to local business. These apps will help discovered them business, restaurants, bars and other events together. According to TechCrunch’s news, Facebook has launched ‘Local’ on iOS and Android in the US. The Facebook app connects 70 million business pages as well as events and permanent locations such as reviews and friends ‘checkins.’
Techcrunch, quoted by Product Manager Aditya Kulwal, said, “This new app will help you to simplify it, where you have to go, where to go, where to eat and what you need. All of those who believe in your faith and who you know will be based on their review. ‘
‘Local’ app will bring calendar and event listings together and coming with it will become a social media platform like Foursquare and Yelp. The results on these two apps are given by local users.
Facebook is going to start testing two features soon. ‘Red Envelope’ enables users to send money from platforms to other people, and a ‘breaking news’ tag can be used by publishers to make people aware of the latest happenings around them.
