Open your Facebook app on your smartphone and navigate to the Settings screen.
There you might be seeing the Nearby friends option under favorites which can be used as a shortcut to reach the settings for location history and the Nearby friend’s feature.
If your device is already activated by the Nearby friends’ feature, then you can see the nearby friends under the next screen else you will be prompted to enable this feature.
We will see here the normal menu way to enable the Nearby friends feature. Follow these steps:
> Go to the bottom of your Settings screen of Facebook App on your smartphone.
> There you can see many settings for the App including the App Settings, News-feed preferences, Account settings, etc there.
Open the “Account settings” menu which will be opened on the next screen with a lot of options like General, Security, Privacy, etc.
> In the Account Settings screen, we need to find out the “Location” option under the various options given.
This screen will open up the location settings screen of the Facebook app on your smartphone with options like Nearby friends, Place tips, Location history, your device location settings, etc.
> In the location settings screen, first, we need to verify that your device location history is ON. If your device location history is not yet turned ON, the Facebook app itself will prompt you to turn it ON.
Once the device location history is turned ON, then you can turn on the Facebook location history by tapping the button against it.
> After the Facebook app location history is turned ON, then we can enable the Nearby friends’ feature.
The Nearby Friends feature is useful to most Facebook users as it helps them find out the real location of their friends via the Facebook App.
