Facebook Places Facebook for iOS has been updated to version 3.4. This update brings expected improvements to the News Feed and notifications, but it also adds a few more useful features. We now have the ability to see where our friends are located in relation to where we are based on their check-in habits. We can also exercise our authority to unfriend anyone for any reason right from our device.

Facebook stalking has never been easier. If there’s someone that loves to check-in to places, it’s now easier than ever to know exactly where they are in Google Maps. If you go to the Places icon, you’ll see an option labeled “Maps.” Assuming you have location-based services turned on, you’ll see pictures of your friends on the map. Touching on their pictures will bring up an option to see their location in Google Maps. From Google Maps, you can see exactly where they are in street view.

I tried this with a couple of my friends who like to check-in to places. It’s scary how I now know exactly where they live and what their houses look like. Use Places with caution people.

The update also lets you check-in to events that you already committed to attending.

The last major feature lets you unfriend anyone at the press of a button. All you have to do is go to their profile, touch on the arrow icon on the top right corner and find the big red unfriend button. You may fire when ready.
