According to unnamed sources cited by The New York Times, Facebook plans to introduce a new location-sharing feature to is social networking service. The feature will let users share their own location as well as see the location of their friends in their news feed. The Times' source says that Facebook has been working on the feature for a year, and has waited until it is fully ready before releasing it to its 400 million users. Facebook will also make APIs (application programming interfaces) available to third-party organizations who wish to enable location features within their own Facebook apps. Facebook has not said if or how mobile phones will play a role, but many of the site's users access it from devices such as BlackBerries, Windows Mobile, the iPhone and Android handsets — all of which offer GPS location tools. More details will be made available at the f8 conference, to be held in late April.
