I am working on a few new features for this site, one involves showing my ‘last known location’ on a map. Since starting to develop this I have been thinking long and hard about whether you should really share your location on the web.

Sharing your location is becoming increasingly easier as the weeks roll by, with new methods such as Gowalla, foursquare and geotagged tweets popping up. Are we all becoming a bit to open with our location? Do you have an opinion on whether you should share this information with the world wide web? Do you avoid doing so or do you openly share this information? Whatever your answer what are your reasons for this opinion?

I’m genuinly interested to see the response and how it varies between different people from different backgrounds. Please comment with your take on the subject.
