Unless you've been under a rock for the past few years, chances are you've used some sort of geolocation-enabled app that serves up suggestions, deals and advice based on your current location. Facearound is the latest addition to the growing category that includes powerhouses such as Yelp and Foursquare ... two popular options and are the two I regularly use. What differentiates the newcomer from the others is that it's specifically pulling information from your Facebook friends.
This way of search, I believe, might make Facearound a viable option for exploring the world around you based on like-minded reviews of shops, coffeehouses, restaurants and other spots you might be interested in. There is one caveat, if you have friends that aren't very interactive with the places around your locale, then there might not be a lot to explore.
