While I have not seen anywhere specifically that the UK is out, Facebook's places website states "Places application is available to users in select countries with mobile access to the Facebook application" so it could very well be that it just has not rolled out yet in the UK.

according to Facebook Places | Facebook
"Places is currently available in a few select countries (including the US, UK and Japan) with many more on the way.."

Thanks for the link, but there is no option for GPS on the 8520 nor does it come up with the option to check in...

edit
might as well forget about places on 1.9 as the 8520 doesnt have GPS?

I love this app. Simple and elegant. Well maybe a little too simple. No chat.

I was a little ticked off at first by the messages function (sending tons of messages - including OLD ancient messages - to my BB inbox) but having disabled that function, I am fine with logging in to FB from my BB and being able to both view and delete messages from within the app.

Other than that minor speed bump, I really dig the new app --- just need to add FB chat.

Do not attempt to type in all CAPS. It's rude, and the forum blocks it anyway.

give it some time. i'm having issues with fb for bb for the last two weeks because i think facebook is doing some sort of site updates n changing things (again). for example facebook went completely offline today for 5 minutes. Things like these happen when they're messing with facebook so just give it a bit of time, i'm sure they'll straighten out the issues. believe me that you're not the only one having problems. across many forums on the net, peeps are b*tchin with all the same symptoms.

I miss the possibility to copy and paste in the FB app. Also can't find any way to see my friend's friends. Only in the mobile site... Too bad
