Facebook Places

Facebook recently announced "Places", its brand new location-based API which borrows from popular check-in services like Foursquare & Gowalla.

Now that a social network as large as Facebook has added location as a feature, where does that leave other smaller check-in services? Some would say "Places" is a big deal because it legitimizes the "location" space, which until now has been dominated by a relatively small group of early adopters. As social location services begin to go more mainstream, what does this mean for privacy? Mau & Graham go over the new Places features and also discuss your options for privacy on today's AppJudgment!
