    Facebook Places - Won't Detect Location

    The Android App does not have the "Places" function added yet. To bypass this, I read a recommendation to go to touch.facebook.com. However, each time I try to share my location, my phone always says that it cannot detect my location. This is when I have full coverage - 3G. Is the Nexus One incapable of sharing the location for some reason? Is there a way to bypass this?

    Just a couple of things:

    1.) To best determine location, use GPS and not the phone network which may be weak due to approximation to nearest tower.

    2.) Best to be outdoors and have a clear view of sky for location to work.

    3.) Facebook has had availability issues all day.

    1) My phone has no trouble detecting location on websites such as google.com. It always shows which city I'm in and gives me the "near me now" option.

    2) I have also tried detecting my location (through Facebook) while outside with clear skies.

    3) I know Facebook has had issues today, however I haven't been able to detect my location through Facebook since they launched the option (August)

    Touch.facebook sucks. It does the same for me. I tried to do places for the hell of it, and it never works. Nothing wrong with my GPS, but it's like it times out too quick before it allows and establishment of the GPS location.
