Facebook feature to help you find free Wi-Fi nearby

Do you always go over your data limit on your phone? Then this new Facebook feature will be a godsend – if the rumours are true.

According to Mashable, Facebook is testing a new feature that will let you find nearby wireless hotspots.

A Facebook spokesperson told the website: “To help people stay connected to the friends and experiences they care about, we are rolling out a new feature that surfaces open Wi-Fi networks associated with nearby places.”


The feature is believed to display on a map the nearest locations where you will be able to access free and public wifi – like a McDonald’s for instance.

The experimental feature is still in testing and has yet to officially roll out.
