Facebook is rolling out a new feature on mobile which is called "Discover People" with the objective of mobile users making new friends locally or at an event. Somehow, I wonder if this might just turn out to be a stalkers paradise.

Facebook is rolling out a new section on mobile called “Discover People,” which encourages users to introduce themselves by updating their profile, then scroll through a list of upcoming events to see who else may also be going, as well as browse through lists of people in their city or who share the same employer. The feature, designed to facilitate connections between people who aren’t already Facebook friends, could be used for business networking or even dating purposes, given its design.
