Wear your tin foil hat people, Facebook would like to know the places you’ve been. Enter (the evil) Facebook Places. There was foursquare and Gowalla, so what’s the big deal?
Facebook or F*c*book as I call it, encourage” the users to include actual personal information to the profile as opposed to foursquare and Gowalla where users can put whatever they want. Yes you can call yourself as “Pointy Meat Smasher” in foursquare and Gowalla. F*c*book wants you to “connect” with all your stalkers… I meant friends.
Here’s what you need to do. Do not use F*c*book Places, and avoid using F*c*book if possible. You can still keep your F*c*book profile, but do not give them your personal information.
I have removed F*c*book applications off my phones.
