Facebook today announced a new feature called Drives. No, it is not a "drive" in the sense of another cloud storage service.
The Drives function comes with the concept of "clothing sharing" or "food sharing". It relies on social media fundraising tools for emergencies and communities, only this time it is not about raising money but donating real estate.
The feature, which launches in the US, will be available at the Community Help Center on the Facebook app. You can access by typing 'Community Help'in the Facebook search bar and then by clicking on "Request or Offer Help" and "Create Drive".
You will then be able to fill out a form with information such as the type and number of materials you want to collect. Once created, you and others will be able to see a tracker that shows how many material goods the collection contains and how many are still needed.
The feature is based on fundraising tools released by Facebook to help with emergencies, charities, nonprofits and more.
Drives start today and will be available to everyone "in the coming days" - hopefully it will be in time for Christmas.
