We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Facebook. Facebook will be using our Global Places data, including Restaurants and Hotels extended attributes, in order to help enrich and improve the quality of Facebook’s US places data. This data will be used across many features in Facebook including Facebook Business Pages, places search, Check Ins, and Place Tips.
We are excited to provide Apple with access to and tighter integration with our Global Places data.
