I’m not convinced. I also read some articles about this new feature this morning. But here’s my take.

Say you have an average of 300 friends. How many do you really care about? How many are really your friends and not just casual acquaintances?

For arguments sake let’s say 30. (seems like a lot to me but I am a bit of a loner!)

Now when you’re searching for local restaurants or what not. You’ll likely get results like “3 of your friends have been to Pizza Hut in Adelaide”. Of those friends – only 1 may actually be someone you care about. AND it’s likely you already know they’ve been to Pizza Hut in Adelaide because they told you / posted it on their wall at the time.

So of what benefit is this feature?

Keen to hear rebuttals…
