Yahoo geo-location platform, Fire Eagle, has been launched to the public. Developers can now easily include positional data in their applications. For bloggers and social network users, that means you will easily be able to update your physical location.
Since March, Six Apart users have been using this functionality.
I love blogging. Even micro-blogging has won me over. But I’m still not sold that my network of peeps really need to know when I’m crossing country lines.
I’m curious to hear from fellow bloggers. Do you think geo-tagging adds an important dimension to your blog? Do you think it’s creepy? Could you care less?
It should be noted that Fire Eagle allows you to disable tracking at any time. In fact, you can even lie about your location.
You can expect to see the opportunity to post your positional data more frequently in the coming months. Are you in?
