Facebook Adds Location Check-Ins Feature Called 'Places'

From Facebook blog,

If you're like me, when you find a place you really like, you want to tell your friends you're there. Maybe it's a new restaurant, a beautiful hiking trail or an amazing live show.

Starting today, you can immediately tell people about that favorite spot with Facebook Places. You can share where you are and the friends you're with in real time from your mobile device.

If you are already familiar with social location tool like Foursquare, then you should feel much at home with 'Places'. For now, 'Places' is only available using the most recent version of the Facebook application for iPhone or from touch.facebook.com if your mobile browser supports HTML 5 and geolocation.
