Early today Facebook announced Facebook Places a way for Facebook users to check into locations. Mark Zuckerberg said that Facebook places was created for three main reasons:
1. To help people share where they are
2. To show people/places around you
3. To show what’s going on and discover new places around you

As some of you know there are over 67 location-base applications such as TriOut, Brightkite, Whrrl, Loopt along with the applications that presented at Facebook HQ tonight that included Gowalla, Foursquare, Yelp and MyTown. Now we can officially add Facebook to the list of location-based apps, making it over 68. Facebook Places will be available tomorrow at http://touch.facebook.com and the soon to be updated iPhone app. With all the concern about Facebook privacy and check-in fatigue are users willing to ditch their favorite location-based app and use Facebook Places alone being that all of your friends are suppose to be on Facebook? I know, I’m not but what about you? Let me know by taking the will you check-in with Facebook Places poll below.


Thanks
