WeePlaces Ratio Finder looks at the data in FourSquare and shows a lot of interesting information. Very cool, but in case the privacy implications of FourSquare haven’t occurred to you, playing that game leaves a tremendous amount of information about you “out there”.
You’ve probably heard about people who check in on Foursquare, and because they have their home addresses listed come home to robbed houses. OK, so just don’t list your address . . . anywhere (ha!). But WeePlaces Ratio Finder is the kind of application that takes the dangers of FourSquare to new levels.
For example, here’s a map of everywhere in New York City that I checked in on FourSquare over the course of about a year:
See that little “9 views” note? It’s how many times my map was viewed in about five minutes after I generated it. The level of detail is amazing, isn’t it? Well how about displaying information like that in real time, showing my movements? Just watch this video from WeePlaces Ratio Finder for that:
All of this information is just . . . out there. I’m not going to do a “the sky is falling” thing, but let’s be clear: every time you share information about yourself on the Internet you make your life a little bit more open. And while it can be fun, it deserves some thought. Some planning. And yes, that’s what we do here at Answer Guy Central, so feel free to contact us to work on your Search Engine Optimization / SEO Consulting Strategy.
In the meantime, play with WeePlaces Ratio Finder, and see what fun you can have.
