A Dutch website, which only took a few hours to create apparently, has had a lot of media coverage recently because it highlights the dangers of sharing location information online, especially on sites like Facebook and Twitter. I’m not going to go into what they are because chances are you’re already using them! As the website name suggests (PleaseRobMe.com), come and help yourself, in other words! Any information you publish onto the internet is open for the whole world to see and there are those who will see that as an opportunity to take up your irresistible offer.
As far as I understand it, the website provides a search for Twitter and Foursquare feeds (ie. statuses posted by users of what they’re up-to, where they are etc., every minute), I mean it’s crazy!! Why would you want to share that information with people you don’t know, you’ll never meet perhaps ever in your life?
By the way, this is my post…hope you enjoyed it – there’s more to come from me and the team.
Stay tuned! 😉
