Yesterday Facebook released an update of it’s iPhone app. This update came with a new feature by Facebook called “Places”. Once this feature is activated you can share you current location with your friends. This application is more effective when someone is using Facebook mobile app & on the move constantly. You can also use it from your laptop or desktop computer to share your location. You have the options to disable that feature from your “Privacy Settings” under “Account” menu.
Update: Even though Facebook updated it’s mobile app with “Places”, I still couldn’t make it work as of August 19th. I updated the app on my device and already tried couple of times but seems not working in New York region.
