A new software released today will give users of mobile phones and PC’s the ability to allow google to track their location. Using the GPS or WiFi on your phone or PC, anyone you give permission to will see your picture on google maps.
Google states that they will not store any information, but only keep record of where you were last located at. Similar service is already being offered by another company, but Google plans to expand service to more phone types.
People who do not want to give exact information can change the settings to only tell what city they are in. There are no plans to sell advertising alongside this tracking service. Experts think this could be a great marketing tool in the future.
