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.
