As Techcrunch article points out, this was built by the Glancee team (acquired nearly 2 years ago). The service needs to be enabled in the "more" settings of the Facebook app on iOS or Android. Very curious to see how people use this. Personally I'd prefer to broadcast my location to a small number of my close friends, and while the exact location isn't revealed unless given permission, I usually don't want to give everyone else an excuse to message me to meet up simply because they're nearby. I hope I don't sound like a jerk but I'm pretty sure most people feel the same way.

Yeah, not quite sure why they aren't prioritizing this even more. I feel like it could be its own app. I've actually deleted the FB app from my phone and only have messenger.

Good video description by @joshconstine. He describes some clever ways they're promoting the feature within the Facebook feed itself: E.g. "4 of your friends are nearby. Tap to enable nearby friends."
