Facebook Places allows users to check-in a various locations and sharing with others where they are located. Business owners are recommended to claim their business listing on these pages, enabling them to control the listing. While I still don’t suggest business owners only claiming their place pages, but rather focusing on a fan page (due to customization features), it is good to note that anyone can suggest edits to Facebook Place pages.

So the suggestion for business owners: claim your Facebook Place Page, and monitor all activity happening there.
