  1. Yeah Im kinda thinking that this wave of location based social networking will soon fizzle out. Sometimes Its just silly you know? I just checked in at McDonalds! Who really cares!

    What I think will get alot of traction over the next few years is companies utilizing geo-targeting within their web interfaces as a way to win customers and provide a great experience. We conduct alot of multivariate testing and in doing so see that with sites that tailor by geo target, these conversion rates are alot higher.

    A great tool to do free geo targeting is BT Buckets…check it out

  2. I have to be honest and say that I dont exactly like all the useless information that people seem to want posted online, but sometimes it can be fun I guess.
    Speaking as someone trying to get into marketing though, I do appreciate that there could be benefits in terms of traffic and seo.
    Final question – in a world gone mad, is there much point being the only sane one left?
