Last night Facebook announced their new Facebook Places functionality that allows users to “Check In” to a certain location via their mobile device and then share your location with your friends on Facebook. The new functionality has officially been released since last night (Wednesday). However, you may (or may not) see Facebook Places either on your mobile handset (visit share.facebook.com via your mobile browser), or via the Facebook iPhone app. For the Facebook iPhone App, you’ll need to visit the app store > re-install the Facebook app to the latest version > you’ll then see the Facebook Places icon in the middle of your screen.
Stay tuned for more tips and how to’s with Facebook Places.
