Facebook Places Goes Live in the UK

The news that Facebook Places goes live in the United Kingdom has created a buzz across the web. The location feature of Facebook has launched its location feature in the UK today (Friday, September 17, 2010). Having this unique feature rolled out for UK, Facebook is experimentating on it, which indicates it may or may not be available for all globally immediately.

You can check out the feature by tapping on the Facebook Places option on your Facebook for iPhone app, or on Facebook’s mobile site touch.facebook.com.

So what this Facebook Places all about?

It’s a simple feature, which allows its user to check into real-world demographic locations through the Facebook profile of a user. Well I found this functionality of Facebook mush close to what has been offered by Foursquare. What do you think about it?
