Android users can access Facebook Places on the mobile site

Facebook Places

Most of you have heard of Facebook Places by now, which gives users the ability to “check-in” at various locations so their friends and family can see all the fun and exciting places they go.  Apple iPhone users received an immediate update to their Facebook app to support the new feature, leaving Android users in the dust.

Fortunately, there is a temporary solution for Android users running 2.x.  Simply visit in your browser, and then navigate to “Places” in the upper right corner.

We’re sure the Android Facebook app will be updated soon, but for now, at least Android users have a way of utilizing this new service.  Also, we’re curious to hear your thoughts about Places, so leave us a comment below!
