With the popularity of text messaging and the rise of Twitter via mobile there is a growing trend for find me/follow me mobile applications. FindWhere, a Sterling, Virginia based company, has just launched an application called Livecontacts to help you find and keep track of your buddies. Users can now share their location and track their friends’ locations for free. Livecontacts is taking the same approach that craigslist took to democratize the online classified advertising space by offering users what is traditionally a paid geographic data service for free.
Livecontacts just launched its downloadable application and complimenting Web-based product yesterday and it already has over 10,000 registered users. You can sign up and active your a number of Samsung, Nokia and Blackberry phones. Unfortunately, the iPhone does not yet have an application offering but should just as soon as the Apple iPhone SDK is released. If you give Livecontacts be sure to friend me up.
