If you have the Facebook application downloaded on your mobile phone, be it an iPhone or any android-based phone, your would probably have noticed a new feature called Places and wondered what is it all about.
Well, Facebook Places is essentially an upgrade which allows location-based checking in. In a nutshell, Facebook Places allows you to be able to tell all of your friends where your current location is. For example, if you are hanging out at your favourite café, you can take out your mobile phone and check-in to Facebook Places. It works the same way as posting your status, except you let your friends know your exact location. Besides that, you’ll also be able to know if your friends are nearby or have just visited this café, amongst many other features.
If you’re already getting all excited about trying out Facebook Places, I will have to burst your bubble as it’s still not available in Singapore yet, but be patient, I’m sure it’s only a matter of time.
