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
