Google maps searching for friends


google-map.jpgADOTAS — Google has launched Latitude, a new feature for maps on your mobile device and an iGoogle gadget on your computer.

Once you’ve opted in, you can find the location of your friends and family who have decided to share their location with you. With Latitude, not only can you see your friends’ locations on a map, but you can also be in touch directly via SMS, Google Talk, Gmail, or by updating your status message; you can even upload a new profile photo on the fly.

You not only control exactly who gets to see your location, but you also decide the location that they see. For instance, let’s say you are in Rome. Instead of having your approximate location detected and shared automatically, you can manually set your location for elsewhere — perhaps a visit to Niagara Falls . Since you may not want to share the same information with everyone, Latitude lets you change the settings on a friend-by-friend basis.
