It is reported that Fbook is developing a new app that track location of the user, and gives that info to friends when they are around.
This app will be introduced in March, and will run even when it is not open on user’s mobile. For instance Fbook user Shirley may get a notification that says Bob is around the corner — even if neither of them happens to be using the app at that time.
Fbook is showing a more interest in location-sharing. Last June the company experimented a “Find Friends Nearby” option in its mobile app. Designed to facilitate meeting new people, users can instantly add the “John Smith” they meet at somewhere, without confusing him with the oodles of other John Smiths on Fbook.
