Facebook’s iPhone app updated with Places


Facebook totally wants to get in the location game with Places. Facebook Places is a Foursquare like feature in which you can check in a place on Facebook if you are physically present at that place. For example, if you are in your neighborhood comic book store, you can check in to it on Facebook so that your friends can know where you are. You can also tag your friends if they are present there.


Previously, the feature was only available on touch.facebook.com for the iPhone and iPad. Facebook has updated its iPhone app to version 3.2 (there is still no official iPad app yet) to include the Places feature. This means you can use the updated Facebook app on your iPhone or iPad to use the feature.

What’s New In Version 3.2

  • New features:
    • Places. Use Places to see where your friends are and share where you are.
    • You can set the privacy of individual status updates.
    • See all recipients of inbox messages.
    • (iOS 4) Upload photos and videos in the background.
  • Bug fixes:
    • Fixed a delay when commenting on a post or posting a status update.
    • Fixed some Notes display bugs.
    • Fixed some reliability bugs in News Feed.

Here is the iTunes link for the latest version.
