Facebook debuts 'Ask' button

If a Facebook friend has their "Relationship Status" left blank, Facebook is now urging you to "Ask."

"On desktop or mobile, users get shown the 'Ask' button when people in their network haven't provided personal details in their profile, like their hometown or their relationship status," reports The Daily Dot.

"Only users who are friends with each other will see each others' Ask buttons, and Facebook requires that users list a reason why they're requesting the information, which may decrease the chances of someone just getting bored and clicking ‘Ask’ on all their friends," further reports The Daily Dot.

A Facebook user cannot hide the "Ask" feature from their profile.
