Facebook is under fire again because of privacy concerns with a new feature. Facebook launched its "Places" app last week. It's exactly like FourSquare, except with a different name. It's meant to be used on mobile devices and basically lets you "check in" to places you visit. Let's say you're going to Starbucks... boom, "so and so just checked in at Starbucks on 4th street." But the privacy concerns come in when someone tags you in their Places post. So if you told your girlfriend you were working late, you better hope your friend Todd doesn't tag you when he checks in at the strip club. 

 Have you used the new Facebook Places feature? What do you think of it? Is it cool and useful or dumb and dangerous? Do you worry about the privacy you give up when people can read about your every move?
