Facebook just rolled out an update to their mobile app that allows you to share your current location with friends so they can stalk/kill you. Sweet. Gosh, I sure hope they torture me first!
The most worrying aspect of Facebook Places is that you can be checked in by other people. So if you're skipping work, for example, and having lunch with a friend instead, they can check you both in and your boss could see it and fire you.
Fortunately, you need to opt-in to that privacy setting. The first time someone tries to check you in, you'll get an option to not allow them to do so or to allow other people to check you in. But once you approve one, you'll approve all future friend check-ins.
Thanks but no thanks, Facebook. Actually -- forget the first thanks, just no thanks. The last thing I need is some "friend" checking me into places thinking it'd be funny. *checks Superficial Writer into gay club like a million times*
Facebook is ready to tell the world where you are at all times [dvice]

This is a video of a guy performing a very special trick with his dog and a laser pointer. Now I don't want to ruin it for you, so I'll just say this: at least he didn't draw on the dude's face, because that would have been wrong (his shoes are, in fact, off). Also, not to st... / Continue →
