Find Your Friends with Google Latitude
Today Google announced a new feature of Google Maps for Mobile, a friend-finding service called Google Latitude. Latitude allows users to share their location with friends as well as see their friends' locations, too. Friends and/or Google contacts have to be invited to participate, and can opt in if they wish. Google's Talk product is built into Latitude, so friends can update status messages and profile photos wherever they are. Latitude also lets users send SMS, IM, or email messages to one another from within the application. Users will need to download the latest version of Google Maps for Mobile to use Latitude. To start, it will work with Android, Blackberry, Symbian S60, and Windows Mobile phones. Google hopes to support the iPhone soon.
