Users will also be able to tag friends who are with them, and the service will suggest other nearby locations that users may be interested in. Check-ins will be broadcast in status updates that will appear in a variety of places, including the pages of a user’s friends and the Places page for that location.

“This is not a service to broadcast your location at all times, but rather one to share where you are, who you are with, when you want to,” said Michael Sharon, product manager for Places. “It lets you find friends that are nearby and help you discover nearby places.”
