    So, much as I love foursquare, and have been growing tired of Facebook's problems, not many of my friends use foursquare and all of my friends use facebook. I expect that though I prefer foursquare, facebook places will end up being more useful. That having been said, I tried to access facebook places on my droid x, (via touch.facebook.com as they recommend at facebook.com/places) and i couldn't see a way to access places. Has anyone successfully used it on a droid x?

    Also, does anyone have any idea when the android app is going to get places support?

    right, that is in reference to the FB app's places functionality.

    the article you cited also says "Facebook Places is available immediately in the United States through the latest version of Facebook's iPhone app and, for other advanced mobile phones, through the company's site for advanced mobile devices."

    Meaning for android it should work on touch.facebook.com

    Facebook Places works on Droid

    There's no Droid app (yet) but Facebook Places DOES work on Droid. You have to point your browser to touch.facebook.com and make sure GPS is on. Touch the "Places" tab and check-in. Works a treat! And this is likely to replace FourSquare for me too and for the same reasons. There's like 2 friends in my entire city on FourSquare but LOTS more on Facebook.

    Wanted to bring this back up. I have a D1, and trying to use the Places on Facebook. I have GPS and Wifi on, location settings on. But everytime I hit the Places tab, it says it can't detect my location? I have tried this at 3 different places. Am I missing something?

    I gave up on using FB places. Maybe if they bring out a Droid app I'll go back to it, but it's too much of a pain to use any browser. Instead, I still with Foursquare and tell it to post to Facebook. Same end result, but a lot less bother.

    despite my last reply to this thread, I thought I'd give it a try on the web browser anyway, and I had the exact same issue as you did. oh well. if they update the facebook app for android to include places I might use it, but otherwise I'll stick to foursquare.
