Excepting for tracking my own kids, I find it creepy. I guess I should use it for rides, in case I get hurt/stuck.
Umm, you can turn it on and off whenever you want and you can only see people who pointedly accept an invitation to be on your list. So how is it creepy? Beats having to call someone every 15 minutes to find out how close they are to meeting up with you.
Creepy? I suppose, if you were able to covertly track some hot babe you saw in the restaurant beside you, but I don't intend on that - do you?
I think it'd be cool to look at see who I know that is riding Sumas today and where are they.
It is weird though, how when I go into latitude, it creates a list of friends; but how it populates that list I have no idea - none have Android; some have gmail… Don't know.
It doesn't work unless you both have Android phones. I've always just ignored the 'suggested friends' thing unless there was someone there I knew had a phone that I wanted to see.
If I were to hazard a guess I would say that you can share your location through Chrome if you're using the Latitude web app and see/be seen by people through there. I do have one friend who uses Latitude on his iphone and I believe this is how he does it.
