Facebook Kills Places, Foursquare and Gowalla Rejoice
On 27 Jul 2011 I wrote on Google+: Google and Facebook should have badges and other game elements with their check-in services. Foursquare is cool in that way but irrelevant as it isn’t in my stream. Now this:
Rest in peace, Facebook Places. At least that’s what all 6% of the people who actually used it might be saying. It looks like Foursquare is going to win the location-based check-in service battle, as Facebook announced yesterday it would be killing the Facebook Places check-in feature within its mobile app.
