Ever since I received my phone before Christmas I've been trying to use the Check In option in FB to check in when I go places. It doesn't seem to work and I have a few friends that has the same phone and they tell me the same thing. Has anyone been successful in using this option?
There is an option on your Facebook application where you can check in to wherever you are at and tag your friends in there too. Somehow I figure it out. I don't know why! But maybe its due to the upgrade with Froyo and also logging into Bing?
In order to use the Facebook Check In feature you must have your GPS turned on. You can turn on GPS by dragging the screen down and selecting the GPS icon.
You can also turn on GPS by selecting Menu, Settings and Location & settings.
Hope this helps!
