  • Many thanks. Very useful. In Singapore, we don't worry about this type of stalking at all. Such crime is pretty well contained -- and even proactive, social media savvy burgler's best have a solid instantaneous escape strategy -- or face some dire consequences!

  • Hi Colin.
    this was a UK study published July 2010 which was more about security and geolocation concerns. Read between the lines, they were trying to show that people should 'worry' more.
    [quote 'There are certain parts of our information that should always be private. It comes down to people understanding what they're doing.' ]


    The research

    Webroot commissioned a survey of 1,645 social network users (including 624 UK-based) who own geolocation-ready mobile devices on June 7 and June 8 2010.
    - 39% (around 600 of the sample) of mobile device users use location-tracking applications on their mobile phone
    – 73% of those use a 'geo-tracking application' to do so
    – Of this 73%, more than a quarter used location-based services to share their whereabouts with 'strangers' and 14% use them to meet new people
    – 55% of respondents said they worry over loss of privacy incurred from using geolocation data
    – One in 11 respondents have used geolocation applications to meet a stranger, either digitally or in person. This is predominantly within the 18-29 age group
    – 64% have accepted a friend request from a stranger
    – 41% are 'aware or extremely concerned' about letting 'potential burglars know when they are not at home'
    – In the UK, 46% of women are 'highly concerned' about 'letting a stalker know where they are,' compared to 27% of men
    – 52% of UK respondents tag their whereabouts in a photograph online
    – In the past year, 30% of UK respondents have shared their geographical location with 'people other than their friends'
