Facebook Places

Places I check in to - Do you use this? If so, how do you work it and why? What are your preferred settings for this and why? Thanks in advance for your input.

  1. I do use it. As far as I know, you have to have a Facebook app on your phone (Android, iPhone, Blackberry, etc).

    When you use it, it pulls up places that are near where you are (it uses the GPS on your phone to locate your vicinity) and then you can select one of those places.

    Hope that helps!

  2. I prefer to use foursquare. As I dislike facebook.

  3. What is it about Facebook that you don’t like Vernon? I’ve heard of Foursquare but I am reluctant to try it because I’m super satisfied with Blogspot, Facebook and Twitter.

  4. I have the geo-locate option on my phone turned off for facebook, hootsuite, and camera. If you don't already know about geo-tagging, check out this article:

  5. What's hootsuite and what does it do? Geo-Tagging...is that when you snap a picture with your phone and the location pops up? I don't mind it so much because I don't always share my photos until after-the-fact Or on a different day. What are your thoughts on that?
