“Friend Radar” and “People Nearby” shows the people according to your Geo location with the only difference is that the former shows your friends near your radar and later shows Unknown people using WeChat, which is quite interesting, Umm!

“Shake” on the other hand is quite a different approach, where user shakes their respective phone and WeChat lookup for other people on their server who are Shaking simultaneously and once the Shake is matched it shows the user along with the distance they are far away.

Besides all these WeChat also provide an extra attribute called “Moments” where every WeChat user has their own piece of profile where users can upload their photos and share among their friends.
