Facebook have unveiled a new smartphone app called “Hello” which will allow users make phone calls from their Facebook account and phone call receivers identify their caller easily as their profile lights up in the screen.  With the App, callers can bypass the need for a telephone number.  The app can also be customised to block certain callers.

The App, which is being developed by Facebook’s Messenger Team will also act as a business directory, enabling users look up a business’s Facebook Profile Page, opening hours and call them directly from the app.

Hello will be significant for business owners, making them more humanly accessible and narrowing the communication gap between their customer services team and customers.
