honey, i’m home… errr… not so much anymore. now you hear… world, i’m NOT home more often…
earlier this week a friend asked me about foursquare.com and if i thought i could be a security threat for her. my answer. yes!
for those of you not in the know, foursquare.com is a social networking site that allows you to check in at different places around town.. it then updates your friends as to where you are via twitter.com, facebook.com and any number of other sites..
it’s not quiet as bad as loopt.com or google latitude where people know where you are every second of the day via gps on your phone.. but its almost as bad. let’s supposed you have a stalker… now all your stalker has to do is follow you on twitter! done… one minute you are at starbucks, the next minute you’re missing… or worse.
let’s go a step further… what if someone knew where you lived… if you are at tgi friday for dinner.. you arent home! bingo.. head on over to http://pleaserobme.com/ you will be amazed! these people have a site that automatically updates every few seconds and tell you who is NOT at home… it makes a very valid point… tell everyone in the world where you are every second, or any second of the day.. might not be such a bright idea.
