Facebook Places Partners: Gowalla and Foursquare

Partnering up with both Gowalla and Foursquare, location-based start-ups and apps – it looks like the two will feed into Facebook Places.

Scott from Gowalla came on stage and talked about the integration between the app and the Facebook user page: look out for some visually rich material, gowalla lets you add pictures to check-ins.

The Foursquare rep Olga bigged up his company’s contribution to the world of location-based work.

Seamless integration has been promised… we’ll see how they turn out when the app updates launch tomorrow.

One thought on “Facebook Places Partners: Gowalla and Foursquare

  • Following the screenshot I see that they want to get the location while you browse on Facebook.com! How do they get the location? by IP? Or weird browser plugin? Or does an optionally installed Facebook Iphone app start if you click Yes?

    I am not in the States so I can not see their new feature in my account. Thanks for helping me guys!
