Wired: Facebook Recommendations Is Here to Tell You What to Do IRL

Facebook wants to tell you where to go. In a nice way. “I’m from the Philippines, which means that whenever someone I know is planning to visit Asia, they ping me on Facebook to ask what they should do. I offer a long list of suggestions, like visiting Palawan and Victoria Peak. Chances are, you provide your own vacation recommendations to people, not to mention tips on good bars, great hair salons, and so on. It’s a big part of social networks, and Mark Zuckerberg wants to make it even bigger part. If you send recommendations to someone, Facebook will compile them into a map for all your friends to see.”
