Over the years, Facebook naturally became a place used to ask for suggestions to friends on several things, such as travel destinations, a good hair or cool bar. The social network saw this usage and decided to make life easier for users and instead of letting them pick between dozens of comments, will improve the interaction tools on the platform.
On Wednesday (19), a new tab called “Recommendations” was launched to help organize the tips received in one place. Just make a post asking for tips and trigger the recommended option for comments with indications bring the map to the location and be saved in a separate tab. You can also access the Recommendations area to other questions or to help friends.

And the news does not stop there. After looking at the advice of friends and choose what to do, users can take specific actions such as:
- Request food : you can order food directly on a restaurant page. Just click “Start application”. It is only for pages in the United States that make delivery by Delivery.com or Slice sites.
- Schedules showed you a sensational spa and want to make an appointment? Click the button to request a time and they will confirm availability via Messenger.
- Request a budget: some local businesses will have a “Request a Quote” button at the top of the page.
- Buy movie tickets and events : Facebook will make it possible to purchase tickets for direct films by Facebook, as well as events in partnership with Ticketmaster and Evenbrite
“It’s no surprise that Facebook believes in the power of friends and in their ability to make our lives better,” said Andrew Bosworth, vice president of Facebook for announcements and business platform.
For now, the novelty is available for devices Android and iOS only in the United States, but soon the resources should be made available in other regions.
