If you have been eagerly waiting for the release of Facebook Places in Europe you will be pleased to know as of today its now available in the UK and Europe.
Facebook Places was launched last month in the US and the UK launch becomes the fourth territory Facebook laces is now available.
Concerns about its security are still prevalent as criminals can very easily build up a profile on a victim and now see when they are out of their house. Especially as the default setting for the new service is ‘On’.
Tony Dyhouse, cyber security director of the UK Digital Systems Knowledge Transfer Network, explained: ‘Location based services have done a lot to improve our lives but people need to treat applications like Facebook Places with care. It’s important to realise what criminals can glean from where you are not, i.e. at home.’
