Facebook Places – The basics

The way it will work will be similar to other geo-locating social apps such as Foursquare where you can notify your friends of where you are via digitally ‘checking in’ to physical locations. The difference with Facebook is that you can also tag your friends who are with you, making Facebook Places a more social geo-app than Foursquare.

You can also integrate a Facebook Page to Places (click here for tutorial), allowing you to further spread company presence and also show how popular your company is in the real world rather than simply online.
