Facebook Places Now Available in UK

Now, it's not just Yanks and the Japanese who can update their location on Facebook. From today, the UK and Europe can access the opt-out service too. This is yet another reason for those fighty Brits and Germans to get up-in-arms about their online privacy. [The Guardian]


UPDATE: I'm waiting to hear from Facebook as to which European countries will have access to Places, and when.

UPDATE 2: Facebook confirmed it's only been switched on for the UK today, but Europe will be "soon."



Wow, it's so obvious this was not written by an American...
