Facebook Places + WG security

6 posts in this topic

Facebook are testing something called Facebook Places that lets friends track each others' location.

This may be useful to WGs for improved security. You could create a limited profile and arrange for friends to track you when you go on outcall.

Too old to be a Facebook user myself, so I leave others to consider the idea etc.

I can't see the point TBH. Facebook Places as well as Google Latitude does not locate a precise address. The old trustful option its just to give an outcall address to a friend before leaving. Simples.

Also: Facebook places not available in Uk until next week, and even then its only on the Iphone, and sometime in the future it will be on Android platform. Still, pretty useless.

Good article and advice. I wouldn't trust Facebook or the likes of Google to handle my personal data given their rather shoddy track record at addressing privacy issues.

All these sort of things are tought up probably for fun but always end up with a negative outcome and use :)
