Facebook 1.9.0: Facebook Places issue fixed.
At least on my 9700 w/OS6 it worked.
Go to Welcome to Facebook | Facebook, log in, check in, mark your place. And for the heck of it I checked in again. Went into the BB app and went to the "places" tab, and all is well.

For those who are still unable to use FB places feature, I found this solution.
Go to Options -> Advanced options-> GPS -> and there you should have some device as the GPS Data source. This could be a bluetooth device which you would have paired earlier from your Blackberry.
If you don't have any device selected in that list , Places will not work on 8520. I tried that removing all bluetooth devices.
There is no need to keep Bluetooth ON just we need to give a device in source.
That device need not to be a GPS compatible device.
And as shared earlier you need to install the latest version of FB app and logout from FB app and then do a device pull and log back in to use the FB places.
Also FB places should be enabled in your FB privacy settings.Sachin

Also, I don't know if this had any affect on it working but before I rebooted, I went to my Facebook permissions on my blackberry and set all to Allow. I did notice that under Connections "Location Data" was set to "Prompt" before I changed it. Also, verify that your privacy settings in Facebook are set to allow places.
Thats all I did and i've been able to check in with the help of this link KB24962-How to enable and configure Places in Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones 1.9
