Please Rob me; The danger of location based services

02/17/2010 — , , , ,

Please Rob Me

The danger is publicly telling people where you are. This is because it leaves one place you’re definitely not… home. So here we are; on one end we’re leaving lights on when we’re going on a holiday, and on the other we’re telling everybody on the internet we’re not home. It gets even worse if you have “friends” who want to colonize your house. That means they have to enter your address, to tell everyone where they are. Your address.. on the internet.. Now you know what to do when people reach for their phone as soon as they enter your home. That’s right, slap them across the face.

The goal of this website is to raise some awareness on this issue and have people think about how they use services like Foursquare, Brightkite, Google Buzz etc. Because all this site is, is a dressed up Twitter search page (link). Everybody can get this information. Bron: Please Rob Me

Vanzelfsprekend, maar zeker goed om nog eens bij stil te staan wanneer je net enthousiast de ‘mayor’ van cafe Bruxelles bent geworden en ze mogelijk je huis leeg halen.
