Facebook App Allows FREE Wifi Search in Penang

Launched in its Beta form, Facebook has released an app to help people find FREE Wifi whenever and wherever you are. If you are always on the go and always looking for free Wifi Hotspots, then this guide is for you. Follow the steps below to enable this feature on Facebook. It helps you locate available Wifi spots nearby businesses [closest connections] that have shared with Facebook.

First, open your Facebook app and search for the "App" category. After that, search for the red "Find Wifi" icon. Once you have clicked on it, you may need to 'Turn On Location Services' to enable this feature. Facebook will browse for the closest available spots on the map and list out the businesses hosting these hotspots.

The way this feature works is using information provided by the businesses that have registered themselves on their Facebook business pages. Although it is not going to pull up every business near you that may possibly have Wifi, only those who have a Facebook account. And if you are a business owner, all you have to do is to make sure that you register the business with "Free Wifi" on your Facebook page. Check out the guide here
