I See You!

As I’ve stated in one of my earlier blogs technology is constantly changing the way we communicate with each other especially through social networking means. Not that it’s anything particularly new but location-based apps are definitely on the rise in the social networking world. These apps allow for people to interact with the world by showing their current position(s) or the places they have already been. Not only can people see what you’re doing but they can see where you are/were at that time.
Even journalist could capitalize on this trend and add an extra element to their stories by showing their readers exactly where they were when something occurred. I think there is a potential issue with these location apps. It can make it very easy for people to follow individuals. Having someone know where you are at all times when you post to that app could be very dangerous. Location-based apps have the potential to really change things but we’ll see how the public responds to them.
