Facebook Places UK Now Live [Beta]

Filed as News on September 17, 2010 4:27 pm

Facebook PlacesThat didn’t take long, Facebook Places just recently went live in the U.S. and now the world’s largest social media network has launched the UK portion of their location based service.

Okay, so the program isn’t available to everyone at this time (Facebook is rolling it out to select users for testing), but given how quickly Facebook tends to beta test and then give full roll outs to their products, it’s only a matter of time.

UK users can find the program at touch.facebook.com and via the official Facebook iPhone App.

Just like the U.S. version of the program users have full control over who they share information with and privacy controls are defaulted to “friends only.”

Facebook has also restricted minors from appearing at check-in points to everyone but their friends.

While the program is available in the UK, the rest of Europe is still without the new feature.
