‘Friend locator’ could become next craze for social networkers
Users of social network sites like Facebook will soon be sharing their exact whereabouts with their friends in real-time, owing to new technology that uses the mobile phone as a tracking device, experts say.
Sure it’s cool to think we have the technology to pinpoint our location to friends around the world, but is it necessary? Is anyone considering the serious safety issues this could pose? Especially with pedophiles, pre-teens, and psychopathic ex-lovers.
