Facebook location-based application, Places went live today.  For the most part, I could care less as I’m already on Foursquare and Gowalla (when I want to update to FB, I just click that permission in my application).

But…once again, Facebook has their privacy settings set to opt-out instead of opting-in.  So you’ll need to change that if you don’t want FB to post where you are when you check in.

Here’s what you’ll need to do to change your settings…

1. Account ➨ Privacy Settings

2. Customize Settings ➨ Places I Check In To

3. Customize

4. Pick your privacy settings (I’m going with “Only Me” since I can post manually through Foursquare)
