Three new features on Facebook you need to learn about
Facebook is constantly evolving and changing, their growth had reached a peak already (there are only so many people on this earth). So naturally the next step would be to expand in other directions, not just social media connections.
We all know Facebook and Google are two giants of the Internet at the moment and from my perspective "there can be only one"!
Here are three of the most important features Facebook wants to improve or implement in 2017:
1. Facebook Search - Apparently, Facebook gets around 2 billion searches every day. This is huge! The next step should be in simplifying the search process, adding new filters and developing a new search and ranking algorithm. If Facebook wants to take a piece of Google's action it needs a real search capable of providing users with accurate information.
2. Find free wi-fi with Facebook - This feature is currently under tests but the general idea would be to have a feature that searches for free Wi-fi networks and hotspots near you to keep you on Facebook and connected all the time!
3. Facebook Messenger Bots - This idea isn't new, I remember using bots 15 years ago on IRC channels. Of course, technology has evolved a lot since then but the idea remains, interacting with a bot as would you do with a human is cool and should be further developed.
Whatever else Facebook plans for the future is going to be big and will take the company into different and new areas and as online marketers, we should be on to date with every change Facebook makes!
