Facebook “Places” Now Accessible for Android Users at Facebook Mobile Site
Last night Facebook announced its new service titled “Places”, which lets U.S. users share their current location with friends. Unfortunately, at the time of the announcement, the functionality was only available on the iPhone application (and still is). Despite this limitation, U.S. Android users with HTML5 capable web browsers (Android 2.0 and above) can check out the new feature by visiting the Facebook mobile site at touch.facebook.com, where it was just activated. I have to admit it seems pretty cool. Hopefully they can tie in some type of giveaways with check-ins. We’ll see.
With Erik Tseng leaving Google for Facebook, I would think true application support will come soon. Expect an update shortly folks.
Will anyone use Facebook “Places”? Do you like this functionality? Let us know below!
