LBS for Social Networks, API's

One of the ways LBS can happen is by helping "social networks" as shown this year at CTIA [CNet articles] exemplified by Rummble, Whrll, Utterz, Socialight in UK and Trutap.

You might have heard of the Google API for Social Networks (which includes GeoRSS location info as pointed out by ProgrammableWeb) despite better and more mature ideas being around.

And I remember reading somehere a suggestion that the move shows that Google could be afraid of Facebook.


Talking about development stacks, check SirfStudio and SirfSandbox: a collection of libraries and tools for Java and C++ development of GPS-based applications.

That if you want to develop and deploy LBS applications to be used this year.
