Facebook Places UK on its map

Good news for Facebookers looking to get locationed up – Facebook Places comes to the UK today

Well, this is going to be fun. Will you be dumping your Foursquare account to make room for Facebook’s Places in your life? Or will you be bemoaning the saturation of life detail your friends are posting online and run off to live in a Mongolian yurt a hundred miles away from the nearest internet connection?

Either way, Facebook Places goes live in the UK today, so expect privacy rants from the right-wing press and plenty of unnecessary scaremongering.

On the other hand, you might find that selling your location data to Facebook for the occasional free latte works in your favour. Head to your profile and flick the Places switch to start playing.
