Facebook Notification Shows Location?

Meg Coffey // 04th August 2014

Did you think something looks a bit different or this morning but can’t put your finger on it? It would appear that Facebook is having a bit of a play around… the globe used in the notification bar is now reflecting your location.
Traditionally the globe shows the Western Hemisphere; as you can see from the image above, the globe is reflecting the Eastern Hemisphere. Facebook has been quietly testing this for a few weeks but (quietly) officially rolled it out this week.

According to Tech in Asia, Asia-Pacific is the single biggest region for Facebook users – 410 million in Asia at the last count, versus 204 million in the US and Canada – so it makes sense that Facebook would want to be more inclusive with this little gesture.

What are your thoughts on this latest tweak?
