Facebook appears to be testing a new module located directly under its Trending module, “Popular Pages in Your Area,” and clicking on the “See All” link directs users to their “Local Places in [users’ cities]” pages.
Facebook appears to have redesigned the layout for searches for places in Graph Search, and the new look includes a “Text Me Directions” feature, where users can request that directions to places listed in Graph Search results be sent to their mobile phones via text message.
Facebook must really, really want its users to start writing reviews.
Some one-sided conversations on Facebook are about to become two-sided, as the social network revealed late Friday that page administrators will be able to comment on public reviews of their pages for places, with full rollout slated to wrap up “in the next week or so.”

Facebook appears to be testing a feature on certain pages for places that allows users to save bookmarks to the pages, in both desktop and mobile, and to share those saved places with other users.
Facebook appears to be testing the ability to filter search results by category, with the option directly beneath its search bar to see all results, people, pages, places, groups, applications, or events.
Facebook is adding review buttons to pages for places, located between the like button and the messages button, joining the follow button spotted earlier this week by reader Matteo Gamba of Wimdu, who also shared the screenshots for this post.
