New Facebook Feature Dubbed 'Stalking App'


The online world is buzzing over a new new Facebook feature. Dubbed the "stalking app" it is designed to let people see which Facebook users are nearby at any given time.

CNN reports that Facebook calls the feature "Find Friends Nearby," and on Monday it was available through Facebook's mobile apps and website despite the fact that it hasn't been formally announced.

The blog ReadWriteWeb already has nicknamed the feature a "stalking app" because it could open people up to potentially awkward or threatening interactions with strangers on the social network who know you're nearby.
