Facebook recently launched the Facebook Places, a feature that will allow you to “check in” to Facebook using a mobile device to let a user’s friends know where you are. But if you still value your privacy and don’t want to broadcast where currently are, then you may want to disable the Facebook places feature which by default is currently enabled.
You can checkout the steps after the jump.
1. Login to your Facebook account, then click ACCOUNT then select PRIVACY SETTINGS or you can click on ACCOUNT then ACCOUNT SETTINGS then locate PRIVACY then click on MANAGE. You should be on a screen similar to the screen shot below.
After that you should be all fine, safe from the prying eyes of the public.
