Title: Geolocation – It’s Everywhere!
Summary: Brightkite, Flickr, Geocaching, Foursquare, Gowalla, Twitter, and now Facebook Places are all major players in the geolocation arena. We have always been a nation of travelers, and at last, via smartphones, geolocation and social media are becoming truly integrated.
This session can start with an overview of the fundamentals and background of geolocation technologies, services, uses and case studies. Then we can open it up to discussion and brainstorming, including these questions and topics:
How do you use geolocation tools? What are your privacy and safety concerns? What do you see for the future of geolocation? Are you planning on, or are you already using geolocation tools in marketing your own business or for your clients’ businesses?
Sonya Mills has a similar session topic about the value in location-based services; that can be integrated with this one or handled separately.
