We checked with Facebook, and no, “Facebook Presence” is not a precursor to any location-based service Facebook may or may not announce at some point.A spokesperson tells us Facebook Presence, which allowed attendees to swipe RFID cards and check-in from various locations at Facebook’s developer conference yesterday, was “just a hack-a-thon project.”
(It’s actually something Facebookers already use to check-in to the beer keg area at Facebook HQ.)
This leads us to wonder: did Facebook not announce their Foursquare killer because it’s in talks to buy Foursquare?
