Facebook Places is being replaced by a new location service

Facebook is making a number of changes to its service, with improvements to its privacy controls.

It’s also phasing out the ‘Places’ feature, which was available to mobile phone users, and will now allow users to ‘check in’ by adding location to anything - including status updates, photos and Wall posts.

Facebook Places was launched a year ago in the USA, with the UK following in September. Users could share their location and could also identify contacts who’d checked-in nearby.
