Facebook Places vs Google Maps for Mobile

Facebook Places is a newly launched location based service from the top social networking site. You can find places pertaining to following categories of products and services from Facebook Places:
  • Stores
  • Restaurants, bars and clubs
  • Establishments
  • TV shows
  • Movies
  • Games
  • Sports teams
  • Music
  • Websites
Google has also released a place oriented service in Google Maps for Mobile update. Google’s search engine strength is well known. Apart from finding location it provides the following value added services too.
  • Get your bearings in your current place of location
  • Latitude lets your friends know your location
  • Apart from locating places, it finds the hours of operation
  • Reviews about Hotel, movie, etc.
  • Voice-guided direction
  • Nearby landmarks and shops
While searching places is Google’s stronghold, it may be a matter of concern that Facebook has an astounding 500 million members compared to Google’s 100 million browsers per day. Will Facebook Places give a tough competition to Google Maps?
