There is notable growth in the number of social media users who are now setting their accounts to include location in their posts. Among adult social media users ages 18 and older, 30% say that at least one of their accounts is currently set up to include their location in their posts, up from 14% who said they had ever done this in 2011 3. Some 12% of adult smartphone owners say they use a geosocial service to “check in” to certain locations or share their location with friends. A plurality of these geosocial service users (39%) say they check into places on Facebook; 18% say they use Foursquare and14% say they use Google Plus, among other services.
