Facebook users keep updated of their friends’ and family’s statuses via notifications; but users want more, they want to be able to add crucial information that can be accessed all in one place. This and more has now become possible through the new updates that Facebook has effected in its app.
According to Peiris, users will now be able to be notified of friends’ milestone activities and statuses such as life events and birthdays among others. You will also be able to keep abreast of sports scores and be reminded of TV programs – but this feature is dependent on the Facebook pages you have previously liked. You will also be able to know via notifications upcoming events that you’ve joined with.
Meanwhile, it is also possible to add more information based on your preferences and where you live to get notified of additional updates after you’ve been able to enable Location History in our Facebook app.
To this extent, Facebook users that have turned up Location History of where they live will also be able to see events going on within their community and this includes happenings in your city. You will also be notified of weather updates and weather alerts, as well as movies coming up in nearby theaters, together with nearby places to eat – linked to Facebook reviews and pages.
It must be pointed out that these new features on Facebook will not change your current notification settings, but this can even be modified anything you feel like in your Settings section. Meanwhile, it is very possible to customize the info you see by simply tapping on the arrow to the right of each card, or just Add More Cards at the bottom of the page.
