New tracking service for mobiles in UK: Friends and family can track you via Sniff
A brand new mobile phone tracking service has just been launched in the UK according to The Daily Telegraph. This new service will allow your friends and family to track wherever you are within a 100 meter radius.
The good thing is it will only allow your friends and family to track you if you want them to track you, this technology will deliver a map to the enquirers (tracker) mobile phone, and it will give them the point of where you are within 100 metres. We like the fact that if someone has indeed agreed to be tracked, they will get the option to be made invisible for as long as they please. Each searching text will cost you 50p and the service provider Useful Networks are looking for thousands of people to sign up.
All users will be able to register on the Social Network Integrated Friend Finder (SNIFF) via Bebo, Facebook and MySpace. This service has been running in Sweden for a few months now.
