One of the main purposes of Facebook, other than snooping around other people's profiles as if we were stalkers, is its events calendar. Thanks to the latter, we can keep up with any festivity, concert, theater play, manifestation or party that we may be interested in by simply taking a look at our notifications.
But the guys at Menlo Park think that it's a better idea to optimize this use and bring it to a standalone app, the reason for which they've released Facebook Local. With this tool, we can easily find out what's happening, when, and where.
