Facebook will soon be expanding checkins beyond Places and will add them to Event Pages in the next release of its iPhone application. The coming-soon feature will allow Facebook iPhone app users to check in to Event Pages and tag their friends in the process.
“We’re currently testing the ability for people to check in to Events,” a Facebook representative told Mashable. “The feature will be available with the next iPhone version release.”
This will make a wave in realtime feeds that underline comments and ratings. Restaurants and Eateries sure will have a new stream of "word of mouth"
