Do you check you Facebook account more than your inbox? Are you “always” connected to your Facebook friends? In a nutshell, is Facebook your life line? Then you must have experimented with various Facebook applications to enhance your profile but did you hear about FindMe?
Electric Pocket has come up with a location based service for Nokia S60 phones, Windows Mobile Smartphone, and BlackBerry. FindMe won’t broadcast your geographical location to your friends. Rather, it will display the tags which you select for various locations.
FindMe will give the user complete control of the how they want to share their locations. You can opt for “Go Dark” option if in case you want to hide your location and “Unknown” (or some other location) if you are in some place which hasn’t been tagged yet.
The working of the program is very simple. Once you install the tiny application on your mobile phone then the application will grab the location of cell phone tower to which you are connected and will request you to assign a tag to that location. Now the application will display this tag in your Facebook profile thus letting your friends know your exact location (if it has been tagged).
One suggested improvement could be preference based tagging where the user should get the chance to display “Go Dark” for couple of friends and normal tag for the rest of the friends. This way you won’t be giving away your location to those with whom you don’t feel like hanging out. Another improvement could be a better logo considering the application has started to gain the buzz across the Internet.
