"Facebook will remove the Places check-in feed from its mobile apps and interface, a company spokesperson confirms with us. Rather than check-in, users will be able to add their city-level location or tag a specific Place in any post."
Facebook's tryna reinvent itself, to test the water to see what'll work.
if it keep itself stale, very soon,google+ will rise.
for eg, take a look at friendster a few years back. used to be the hippest thing ( to stalk anyone)
but then it turned stale, and facebook ,with a fresher vibe entered the scene,everyone switched.

Facebook is becoming damn mother messy. What's wif the sidebar on the right? Some twitter inspired widget?! -.- irritating siol. They need to tone down. Make it more neat. One more thing the topbar is now like permanently fixated at the top. Maybe there shd be a choice to turn that off
