Facebook Places launches

If you’re not content in just knowing what your friend’s are having for lunch, then today could be your lucky day - because thanks to a new Facebook feature you can now find out where in the world they’re chewing down on that ham & cheese no mayo baguette.

Facebook Places launched today and by tapping the ‘check-in’ tab you then give your location to your fellow Facebook friends – yes, it’s all very Big Brother isn’t it? At present the new service is also available in the US and the UK on the iPhone, with plans to bring it to further smartphones in the coming weeks.

The new feature will of course stir the juices of those who say Facebook needs to improve it’s privacy settings.
