New Location-Sharing Application Available for Facebook

School of Computer Science researchers have developed a new location-sharing application for Facebook that features a unique user interface for determining when and where various friends can see the user’s location. Called Locaccino, a version for use with laptops is available for download at www.locaccino.org. A version for use with certain GPS-equipped cell phones is slated for release later this spring. For more information, listen to this podcast with Norman Sadeh, director of the Mobile Commerce Lab.
