Facebook Checkins with Googla Maps
Places from Facebook uses Google Maps to show all the Facebook Places around your current location.
Each Facebook Place listed with the map includes a number of options. The 'map' option centres the map on the selected venue so you can find out exactly where it is. The 'mobile' option presents the user with a QR code link for the venue so you can access it from a smartphone.
Each venue also includes options to post a review or just check-in using your Facebook account. If you choose to check-in you can post a message to Facebook and select to include a map image and a time stamp of how long you will be at the venue.
