Waze integrates Facebook event navigation into its services

Waze is the social-driving app that is making headlines at the moment...

Waze Integrates Facebook Event Navigation, Shows Zuck What He Is Missing

Your friends are having a party. You're not quite sure where it is, but all the details are in a Facebook Event invite. To get there, you'll have to log into Facebook, find the invite and the address, load it into Google Maps and follow the directions. 

Social driving app Waze wants to make that process much, much easier.

On Thursday, Waze announced new features that lets users navigate to any Facebook Event with single click. If you are logged into to Waze via Facebook Connect, you can just click on the event and Waze will direct you to the party. 

If you RSVP to a Facebook Event on Waze, directions will appear 48 hours prior to the event. If there is no address listed in the event, other guests can input the correct address. Waze will also show you the locations and timing of your friends who have RSVP’d to the event, allowing you to track their progress. (You don't want to arrive too early, do you?)

"One-tap navigation to Facebook Events is only the start… drivers will enjoy much more in upcoming versions soon," promised Yael Elish, VP of product and marketing at Waze in a press release.
