I decided to see how “Places” stacked up with Foursquare. I reactivated my Facebook account and reinstalled the iPhone app. Went to “Places” and clicked “Check In,” and… nothing. It mentioned something about turning on Location Services. I know I already have that enabled because other apps are using it without problem. Turns out you need to enable Location Services explicitly:
First, go to the Settings app and select General:
Select Location Services:
Make sure Facebook is enabled (On) if you want to use Places. If you want to disable Places, make sure this is set to Off.

Thank you! this has been driving me crazy trying to work it out!!
my general settings doesnt have the location services there! Is that normal haha
If you don’t show location services, go into Restrictions. Enable them set a pw and then turn on FB then you can disable again and it should work.
Thank you so much. Other people were describing the settings on facebook, when what I needed was the setting on the phone itself. Thanks again
