Facebook Places was announced to the world with just iOS support, taking their own sweet time to make their way to other mobile operating systems. Well, BlackBerry owners will be pleased to know that this geo-location feature in Facebook can now be used on their smartphones, as the Facebook application for BlackBerry has been updated with relevant new features thrown into the mix. Among the other perks include the ability to check in and add a Place while tagging friends, or to check in to Facebook Places within a 1.25 mile radius of your location. You can also play the resident busybody by checking out where your friends have checked in, liking their check ins and what not. All check ins will appear in the News Feed, so you might want to be more discreet with your location if you’re two-timing your wife by telling her you are at the office slaving away while your Facebook account shows otherwise.
