Location based social networking seems to be all the rage. To some, it brings an element of physical proximity that could be used for ill purposes, but if we are objective enough we have to admit such an indictment applies to just everything.
Systems are not “bad” in themselves, the actual badness lies in how some people use them. And services like Foursquare and Gowalla have proven to be incredibly effective and time-saving when it came to recent events like the last SXSW conference.
This site, then, hopes to provide people with a unified location for learning who has checked in, and where. So far, Foursquare and Gowalla alike are supported, and both Brightkite and Yelp are set to hop onboard along the way.
Using this site is as intuitive as you can imagine, as all you have to do is enter the specific location that you want to be informed about for a map to be displayed containing that very same information.
