I agree that it's a pretty pointless feature, but since Facebook has been tracking location data for years, this isn't anything new as far as the government and marketer tracking.What is with all this facebook crap. I mean seriously.... can you not call your friend if you want to see what they are up too. They are basically just masking this to make it easy for government agencies, marketing, and weirdo's to watch your every move. Exactly why I don't do the whole social thing on the internet. What happened to the good old days when a phone was a phone.
