Today Facebook launched Facebook Places, although not live in the UK yet it will be soon. Basically Facebook are bringing checkins and location based services to the masses. Until now, this area has been pretty much dominated by FourSquare and Gowalla. Now while I love FourSquare and use it a lot, and I will undoubtedly use Facebook Places, one aspect did worry me.
