Facebook on Thursday announced a new feature that will allow mobile device users to share locations with friends. Called Nearby Friends, it’s an opt-in feature that lets people share their exact location with other users for determinate amounts of time. Users can choose to share with one friend, close friends, or a set list of people.

When Nearby Friends is on, you can see when your friends are traveling if they’re also using this feature and sharing with you. You’ll be able to see the city or neighborhood they are in, including on their profile.

Rolling out to Android and iOS apps in the coming weeks, Nearby Friends is designed to help users meet up with others, coordinate plans, share recommendations, and more.
