So this is kind of creepy

Facebook has decided that it will now tell you “friends” when you’re nearby. There is now and optional mobile feature that will notify you when your friends are close.

Since Facebook is notorious for having confusing privacy settings, and because everyone has Facebook “friends” who really aren’t friends at all, this new feature might raise some eyebrows. So here’s to hoping Nearby Friends will be more straightforward than, say, everything else about the site.” I think Facebook needs to be careful with how creepy it has been getting lately. Despite these things being optional they could still be creepy and even dangerous. I don’t think young kids should have Facebook, but a lot of them do. This could pose a threat if parents are not monitoring them carefully.
