Google Latitude allows you to share your location with friends and view their locations on a map.
Latitude is completely opt-in, so you must enable it before you can start sharing location and can disable it at any time.
With Latitude, you can also:
- Share your location and status updates with the friends you choose
- See on a map where your friends are and what they're up to
- Quickly contact them with text message, instant message, or phone call
- Control how much or how little location info you want to share with whomever you choose.
Now, I know forfeiting your privacy is all the rage with the kids these days, but this seems like it may even be too much for the most avid "I'm currently taking a poop LOL" Twitter users.
I understand they have security features and such, but I just don't get it. I don't get why anyone would possibly want this beyond, perhaps, a parent who has given their child a cell phone.
