#New — Go One Step Further With Facebook Utility Features

Yesterday, Facebook announced some very interesting new utility features, allowing users and Pages to get more value of their respective communities.

Indeed, users will now be able to:

  • Get Recommendations from their Facebook friends by automatically allowing them to make suggestions, display those on a map and save all ideas in one place.
  • Discover local Events, thanks to a brand new dashboard recommending events that might be interesting for them.

Most importantly, Facebook Pages will now be able to offer advanced possibilities to their fans, including:

  • Order food through services such as Delivery.com and Slide — great for restaurants.
  • Request an appointment via MyTime — ideal for local businesses such as spas and salons.
  • Get a quote for professional services — perfect for plumbers and lawyers alike.
  • Buy tickets through Ticketmaster and Eventbrite — particularly useful for movie theaters and event organizers.

As TechCrunch Journalist Josh Constine puts it:

“Facebook wants you to participate in your community, not just talk about it (…)”
