Buddy Beacon, a mobile geo-locating service, recently unveiled new services that allow it to work across carriers and in conjunction with the popular social networking site Facebook. Now, Buddy Beacon users can use their mobile phones to automatically update their location and activities, and see where their friends are and what they’re up to. Using the Buddy Beacon application on a mobile phone, a user simply clicks “show” to broadcast their location. Friends that have the application will then be able to see that user’s location and status – “having a cup of coffee: Café Deville, 103 3rd Avenue, New York” – and users that have integrated the application with their Facebook profiles will also send the update to their Facebook page in the form of a “status” update.
Buddy Beacon is the first geo-location application to work across wireless carriers, and is just another example of how they hyper-connected are choosing to stay in touch. Learn more, or sign up at Buddy Beacon.
