GLOBAL – Facebook is launching its own location-based application Facebook Places, backed by Foursquare and Gowalla.
Facebook Places lets users share where they are and the friends they’re with in real time from their mobile device.
Users have the option to share their location by ‘checking in’ to that place to let friends know they are there. Users that are checked-in can also see which of their friends have checked in nearby.
In addition to posting a status update, users that have checked-in can also tag friends that are with them, similar to the regular tagging function for photos on Facebook. Sigue leyendo

Over the past few months, the use of extreme textured images in web design is starting to die down. It was used so excessively that is was almost everywhere we looked when browsing the web. Other developments, such as the use of minimalism in web design and various other styles have slowly pushed the dramatic use of texture out of the window.
It does however still play a big part in the world of designing for the web, as this showcase presents. Although there are still some pretty excessive use of texture in a few of the following designs (but hey, it does look good!), the majority of them use texture as a subtle touch-up to their backgrounds, headers or footers, adding that minor but ever-so-important touch of visual interest — why have a plain white background when you can add a tiny speck of texture that just makes your design pop?
This showcase presents thirty-eight fresh examples of texture in web design, from creative design agencies, modern restaurants and even plastic film packaging companies. Let us know your favourite design!
