Facebook Places takes on Foursquare

19Aug10

Looks like everyone is going to pile on the social location based check-in apps then.

Facebook are launching an update to the mobile site, and an iPhone app,  allowing you to discover what’s nearby and where your friends have been, much in the vein of Foursquare.  It seems that this isn’t a competitor to Foursquare though as they were actually on stage at the event with Yelp.

It seems everyone is teaming up to take on Google’s Android Places app (built into Google Maps) for the location based information.
