 Mind you, Facebook is not going to reveal every business or company details near you that might have WiFi available features, just those that are on Facebook. This is an essential feature because it is almost impossible to find any business that does not have a page or account on Facebook.

It could still be pretty useful though. Here’s how to go about locating that Wi-fi of yours.
  1. Open the Facebook app on any Facebook enabled gadget and then click the “More” icon.
  2. Select “Find WiFi” tab from the drop-down list of available options. You might be prompted to turn the feature on if already off.
In a situation you can’t locate the “More” tab, then you may find the feature nested under the “Apps” section. The search results are usually presented as a list, but you can click on the Map button at the top right-hand side of the page to see things on a map as well.
