We all love Facebook for its awesome social networking uses. One of our favorite pastimes is letting people know where we are and when we are there. A lot of us have friends all over the world that are a little bit harder to keep track of. Visualizing just how far away or close they are can be a little difficult at times, so thus Placebook was created.
The location API that is on social networking sites has been waiting for a while to be unearthed and used for a site such as this. It’s definitely going to be interesting seeing where all of your Facebook friends are at instead of going to their info page to see where they’re currently at. There is also an average that Placebook will give you that lets you know just how far away your friends really are.
