Facebook going mobile… your Place?

November 4, 2010

Facebook now has 200 million mobile users and is busy working on many mobile apps. 

Not least of them is Facebook Places Write API which develops services based around location.   Facebook Places  allows users to share where they are and what are doing with Facebook friends via their mobile.  Although recently made available (Sept 2010) in UK, Facebook Places is not yet available here.  

Retail will never be the same again and this gives brand marketing and advertising a powerful new tool to build loyalty and customer base.

    It will be interesting to see how well it takes off.

    I’ve used Google places from my Android phone before to find good places to eat. I’ve found that worked out quite well. Seeing user reviews while you stand outside the building can really take out the guess factor.
