On Me there's a Checkin option. We can add locations, but where are these locations on the web?  Where can we see more of those?

Can't find much information anywhere...

Is this like FourSquare?  

There's a Checkin option on Ovi maps which also allows me to checkin on Foursquare and a whole heap of other places like Facebook, Twitter, and some I've never heard of before.

It's not like Foursquare as in there is no leaderboard, badges, etc. It's just to let people know where you are.

Looking at it, seems it gets places from Facebook.

If it's getting the places from Facebook how does it know who to share you location with?  Facebook friends?

It's check in powered by bing services. You can also see those 'me' tile check in's on windowsphone.com website when you login.

It is using Facebook Place, but also tweet/post out to Windows Live, Twitter and Linked In.
