Facebook is rolling out a new feature to its iOS app that encourages users to share more about what they are doing.
The new feature, part of an app update rolling out to users Wednesday, will surface cards that reveal relevant posts from friends when you check in at a location or post an activity update, such as watching a movie or traveling to a new city.
The cards will appear over your News Feed after you update your status and will only display a few relevant posts at once.
If you check in at a restaurant, for example, the card might display a list of friends who have also checked in there or photos of the restaurant posted by other users. If you post an update about listening to a new song or reading a book, the card might show friends who have also listened to the song or read the book, and what they had to say about it.
Facebook is hoping the cards will provide helpful information and encourage users to interact with their nearby friends.
The new feature, which is iOS only for now, doesn't affect privacy settings and the cards will only display information that has been previously shared with friends.
