Facebook Places vs FourSquare

I find it a real shame that Four-Square has been trupmed by Facebook Places. I can see a strategy behind Four-Square…advertising, promotion…and a benefit to the user.

But  it just can’t trump showing off to your mates, and the seemingly constant need to update people with your latest movements (from bed to the pub in the case of most of my Facebook friends). At least FourSquare seems to have a point.
