Redesigned Facebook app notification acts like Google Now
Facebook started the roll out of its new notification tab in its smartphone app. The said tab is now personalized to the user, giving tailored information based on your interests and current location.
It has become an all-in-one place for keeping up with things that matter like:
- Friends’ birthdays and life events
- Sports card and TV reminders
- Upcoming events
Also, optional information can be added, including:
- Happenings around you
- Weather updates
- Movies playing
- Places to eat
Any additional or unwanted information can be added or removed through the settings. Just tap the arrow to the right of each card to access it. This new notification design of Facebook is greatly similar to Google Now, except that the latter is more mature and informative.
The update is gradually rolling out to both Android and iPhone Facebook app in the US. Other countries might follow soon.
