Facebook users can now get detailed weather info

CIOL Say hello to your new weather app Facebook

You can also set notifications as to when you want to receive weather reports. You also can add other locations if you want, and you need to head to the Weather settings to add those other locations. Unfortunately, you can't swipe between multiple locations just yet.

While right now Facebook is using data from Weather.com's API, the company could also pursue new ways to make the weather updates even more useful.

"We are doing this because our goal is to ... create moments of joy in people's day, like simply telling you that it's going to rain later", according to a Facebook spokesperson.

Of course, the weather section of Facebook is not as nifty as dedicated weather apps as they can show forecast for various locations in a jiffy. You can also view it manually on your smartphone by tapping the hamburger icon in the Facebook app and clicking on "See More" near the bottom of the menu, where you'll be able to see the "Weather" section. Facebook is also testing out various weather notifications, which could alert you of impending bad weather in your area.

Click "Start Order" to get started.

Facebook is once again in the news and this time for its latest innovation.

You get a personalized feel with the cute, cartoon-style heading at the top of the page.
