But many people, don’t like themselves to be checked in by others. For e.g If you went to a bar with your friend and he/she used Facebook Places to update his/her status and also tagged you in it. But you don’t want others to know where you are at then you can do the below settings and can disable your Facebook Friends to check you into any place.
