Location awareness is a topic which scares me and makes me realize it might be useful in some cases. Not so long ago i sign up to four square and it sounded fun at the beginning to update my location every time i moved . The problem was when i went to a Vietnamese restaurant and then i noticed another person i had never met before was there too. I could see her name and full profile so i wondered if she could see mine.I decided not to update my location and i barely use foursquare. I never use it honestly .I had to try it and then i convinced myself that it wasn’t secure at all.
In the other hadn’t i wonder if four square could be a good media to meet new people?It might be fun to be in the same place at the same time with other people you don’t know. Maybe using foursquare gives you the opportunity to get to know a person who enjoys the same things you enjoy. I love to have Pho soup it is so good and that’s why i visit that Vietnamese restaurant.It could be fun to meet someone who likes Pho soup too.I never ever use foursquare with Facebook though . That to me is crazy i really do not want all my friends on Facebook knowing what i am doing haha.
I have heard so many weird things happening to people due to posting their location or details about their life. I really don want to go through a weird event where someone is following me or knows something about my personal life. Not so long ago my sister told me a story about a lady that always updated her location . The problem began when a crazy neighbor decided to follow her every move because she had lost a baby and always had a thing following pregnant lady’s. The neighbor event knew where the pregnant lady had sign up for a registry. The sad thing is that at the end the neighbor murdered the pregnant lady. These are the stories that make me think twice before i try to be a social media junkie and post my location.
