Online social networks already allow users to share
photos, videos and update friends on everything they do. Now a new
generation of sites is going a step further, using satellite
positioning to track users' whereabouts.
Ian Walker is making his way across the car park outside of his office
on Liverpool's Edge Lane.
His friends can watch his journey into work because he's connected to Bliin, one of the new generation of social networking sites that is using satellite positioning technology.

Users with Global Positioning System (GPS) enabled mobile phones log-on using a small application loaded onto the handset. 

 

So this now allows us to share our location as we move around and tag where we are, this has so many possibilities, in commercial land, but in our personal lives as well, being used in a social networking aspect is a new twist on, where do you live ?
