Facebook Places Rolled out in Australia.

Well today Facebook has launched new Facebook places Australia at 10am EST, business listings are also released on Facebook Places, this is a very cool add on for Facebook it means you can now add a business location using a similar format to Google Local Places and foursquare.

I find this very interesting for Australian users because we have something like 9.6 million active users and something like 1/4 is a mobile user, basically this means around 2.15 million are using Facebook places. How many users will be using Facebook places
around the CBD. I think this has huge potential more in fact then Google Maps.

Another interesting point is you can merge Facebook places and Facebook Pages listings.

Here are some images from Facebook places in Australia in action –
