Meet Facebook’s Newest Feature: Place Tips

It’s been a while since we’ve reported Facebook’s renewed version of Places. This time, Facebook takes another step both for the venues and users. Place Tips, Facebook’s brand new feature on mobile, aims to challenge Foursquare and Yelp!

Thanks to Facebook’s Place Tips, now you can automatically see your friends’ reviews about the locations you visit. So, don’t be surprised when you see those tips at the top of your News Feed!

If you click a place tip, you’ll find more information about that location in a series of cards —including your friends’ posts and photos. Also, you’ll be able to like and message the place and check-in instantly on the new place pages.

In order to make this work,  Facebook will locate you via wireless and cellular connections by default —but, of course, you can turn off Place Tips function by visiting your settings.

For now, Place Tips are only available on Facebook for iPhone and limited to some locations in New York.
