Facebook Places now live on iPhone, plots checkmate in check-in game

Location is perhaps the single hottest thing in mobile right now. With location-sharing services like Foursquare, Gowalla, and Loopt amassing millions of users and with untold amounts of potential revenue to be had, it is no wonder that the social networking giant wants to rule the check-in game. You can check out Facebook Places in the latest version of Facebook’s iPhone app or at touch.facebook.com in any mobile browser that supports HTML5 and geolocation.
