Go To Account > Privacy Settings > Custom Settings

Scroll down to "Things others share"

Tutorial to turn off facebook places

From there you can decide it you want to play or not. Keep your friends from being able to check you in with them by disabling "Friends can check me in to places." Your friends might be annoyed with your decision, but remember this it is your privacy. You can still be tagged in status updates, however.

Facebook places privacy concern

This one is tricky and took a few clicks to find. Scroll to the bottom of the privacy page, and under "Applications and websites," edit "Info accessible to your friends" so that "Current location" and "Places I've visited" are not checked off. This will ensure that your information is not shared with any of the applications, games and websites that you and your friends might use.
