The Find Friends feature is something that BBM users have been asking for and BBM is now bringing it to them in this latest update to BBM for iPhone and Android.

The Find Friends feature will detect which contacts in your smartphone’s contact list are already using BBM, and allow you to quickly choose who to send a PIN invite to. For those contacts that don’t yet have BBM, you can invite them to download the app with an email or SMS invite.

Find Friends will appear the first time you open BBM after the app is updated. You can also find it under the ‘invites’ tab menu in the bottom left hand corner of BBM.
