Facebook Places initial thoughts

Facebook has finally released Places, which is basically a rip off of all the other location based services out there right now. While reading about this new feature for the past couple of weeks I was excited to see how they would implement it and if they would have some type of partnership with one of the existing location services. At this point they seem to be going at it alone which is fine except now it makes people choose which service they want to use  or forces them to switch to a number of different apps everywhere they go which does not seem fun at all.
