Facebook’s Location Based Check-In Service Launched

The social media network has introduced a new service similar to the increasingly popular Foursquare.

Facebook launched its much awaited location-based service simply named “Places” yesterday. The service uses GPS to allow Facebook users to search for and broadcast their location and tag friends that are at the same location and have also checked-in. Users have an option to flag down unwanted check-ins and even opt-out of the service if they need to.
