Place Information API for Web

The Places Information API allows your app to retrieve Place-related information. You can retrieve Place-related information using a place ID, and you can get place ID's using the Search API. If your request is authenticated with a user access token, then you can also get social-related information like the number of friends who liked and checked into the Place. Specific friends are also available if they have authenticated your app with the user_tagged_places and user_likes permissions. Note that these permissions require you to submit your app for login review.
