Facebook will be serving lattes and other fancy beverages in a pop-up coffee shop in London, and offer to help you with privacy settings while you’re there.
Here is a new thing no-one really expected from Facebook: coffee shops. For real.
The first Facebook Café will be a pop-up coffee shop located inside The Attendant on Great Eastern Street and will be open for two days on August 28 and 29. Facebook then plans to open another 4 across the UK between August 28 and September 5.
But don’t get this wrong, coffee is only there to make you want to walk in. Facebook figured out that over a quarter of its UK users to not know how to customize their privacy settings on the platform. The company will thus take this opportunity to show users what settings are available, how they work and how they can help them share better.
And in exchange, drinks are on the house, as long as you accept to take part in a privacy checkup. Sounds like a win-win to me: free coffee and a safer Facebook experience.
