Facebook Places now in UK. Are you still using it?

Facebook Places UK

Facebook Places has gone live in the UK. It lit up in Japan a few days ago as well. No love for Canada or many other countries yet. Still, even in locations where Facebook places has launched, it doesn't seem to have slowed down FourSquare or Gowalla at all.

Is Facebook Places available where you are? Are you using it? If so, let us know how it's been working for you, if not, tell us what's kept you away.

[Thanks English Mike!]

Facebook Places now in UK. Are you still using it?


I've dumped all location based things. I just don't have a need to let people know where I am at all times. My wife is in the public eye and all those location based apps do is let people know you're not home. I still use the FB app, but I've disabled anything that has to do with location.

I'll check in when I go somewhere out of the ordinary. I can't be bothered, though, when I'm just going to work or the grocery store or wherever.
