Washington: Facebook is testing a new feature called Place Tips that will put useful and relevant information about the users' location in their News Feed.

According to the Verge, the Facebook app will try to guess when a user is in a popular or interesting location and surface relevant tips, photos, and posts from the place in question.

Facebook's product manager Mike LeBeau said that News Feed today is a pretty good tool at connecting one to friends and news, adding that it is Facebook's job to connect the world.

The latest feature has been rolled out to users in New York as of now.
