Facebook has devised another way to “connect” you with some of the 2 billion people on its network.
The social media giant said Friday to CNET that it’s testing out a new label called “things in common” that users would see in comments.
According to the tech site, when you see a public conversation on the platform—on a brand or publisher page, for instance—Facebook will highlight things you may have in common with non-friends who left comments.
Therefore, you might see a label that says “You both went to Rutgers University” or that you were both born in California. The label might also reveal if you both work for the same company, but aren’t friends.
