Placebook

Places has hit the UK, and it seems I have already hit about 20 different locations, two of which being nearby gay joints.  Ohh the fun begins. You can of course alter your privacy settings, but where’s the fun in that.

Those that are familiar with FourSquare, this is not going to come as a change in behaviour but it would seem those that aren’t are now baffled to the pointlessness of places.  To which I say, dudes, stick with it and you’ll become and addict, if you’re not already part of the next gen that feels they need to tell the world every little aspect, now there friends, coleagues and unfortunates can see every new venue they enter, Hurr-Arghhhhh.

This location based app has been present in the US for a month now but has only just been rolled out in the UK.

With brands like Domino’s Pizza, McDonald’s and Jimmy Choo’s already having taken advantage of it’s predecessor FourSquare, it will be interesting to see what, if anything, facebook will allow them to do.
