Facebook is testing cards feature for mobile experience

Facebook has recently been testing a new feature similar to Google Now cards on its iOS mobile app.  Essentially, when you interact with your Facebook account, relevant information will be displayed for you to view and swipe away.  From the picture we’ve seen, the information doesn’t look as detailed as Google Now’s traffic updates, package tracking, and sports.

We could be in for a surprise and I think it would be interesting to see Facebook take on a similar approach in the social media world, just like Google has already done in our daily lives.  Nothing has been updated for Android users to get their hands on it, but I’m sure it won’t be long before we see a beta apk come along.  Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
