Facebook Places pages are suggesting others located nearby, with pictures of friends who checked in there and like buttons.

This development comes just in time for Facebook’s expansion of the Deals service, which may get more traction from the suggestions of nearby businesses. It would put get more Place-related activity into people’s news feeds, which could further boost Deals.

Readers, have you seen suggestions of nearby Places when you are on a Place page?
