Do you do Location with phone apps? Community Stuff.

There's many times Ive thought about Location based tweets, good or bad?

Good?
Great for keeping in touch
Great for informing people you are safe
Great for lots of things.

Within communities there CAN be some irksome opportunists in the shadow economy.

Criminals.

Was reminded today of why I am loathe to location tweet in my typing, or letting an app do it. Also realised if your hotspot is on, or bluetooth, people can follow you round corners and through throughways.

Also was told that the community police would tweet a warning on being careful with location based tweets/social apps.

Its here.


They also mentioned today mobile phone snatching, which , if you are not paying attention is an increasing occurrence. 

I thought I'd share this.
