Geolocation privacy – are you worried?

The new trend in social media is represented by geolocation. Geolocation is “the identification of the real-world geographic location of an object, such as a cell phone or an Internet-connected computer terminal. Geolocation may refer to the practice of assessing the location, or to the actual assessed location.” Wikipedia

Many social networks or microblogging platforms as Twitter and Facebook have rolled out its location-based features. These location-based tools are gaining more and more popularity but on the other side, people’s concerns regarding their privacy are also increased. Due to these privacy issues, many Facebook users have decided to close their account.

I am curious how many of our readers are concerned about this matter?
