Facebook Places on TP2?

Has anyone had success using Places on FB on their TP2? I'm doing what it says... logging on from touch.facebook.com. It gives me the option to share my location... then doesn't do anything. I have my location settings all on... just doesn't do anything... anyone else?

Re: Facebook Places on TP2?

to do it they need a html 5 capable browser. if you're using opera mini try opera mobile. or try skyfire. remember you need to both enable it and the check in. on mine getting to the right page was clunky. must get to touch.facebook.com/places and set it, then go to privacy settings and make sure people can see it, then touch.facebook.com again on the right browser and the check in option is right at the top.

Yup... using opera mobile... even tried skyfire. I went in to places, but I see nothing to "set". Then I go back to the main page, on the right of the browser, all it says is "places" then I click that... then it tells me to share where I am with friends... I click on that... and the screen just is white... nothing going on. What am I missing?

Re: Facebook Places on TP2?

Well shi... I thought clicking that updated your place and that was the end of it. But I checked and it doesn't. Then I tried in the other browsers and no luck there either. I took it one step further and saved the entire check-in web page, javascript and all, then copied it to my phone, and tried to open it locally. No good. So I uploaded it to a server and tried to open it from there. I can see the big checkin button but clicking it in opera gets me "your browser doesn't support html 5 geolocation". Clicking it in skyfire produces nothing at all.

I guess it's hosed. Sorry, I thought it was working for me but I don't think it's working for anyone.

Re: Facebook Places on TP2?

If you install one of the Four Square apps you can send your location to Facebook that way. You can download WinMoSquare from the Market Place, or MySquare from here...

MySquare :: Rising Mobility

You'll also need to first sign up with Four Square...
