Facebook might launch their own location service this month

Facebook might become the latest player in the growing location services market.

Industry sources say that Facebook is working on launching their own version of check-in and it could arrive as early as this month.

The difference is that the company would let their partners use the service to market their services.

The reports claim that McDonald’s is one of the early partners which is already working on an app powered by this new platform from Facebook.

Foursquare, Gowalla and MyTown are some of the popular players in this segment of the market. Google is also expected to launch an updated version of their Latitude service soon.
