Glympse Adds Facebook Sharing

Glympse is announcing new features to their location-sharing service today which now includes Facebook integration. Android users can share their location with Facebook friends and allow them to track real-time movement over a predetermined time period.  That’s right, you can now post your location on your wall for the world to see!  Previously Glympse allowed for sharing with phone contacts via text, email, and twitter in increments up to four hours.

“Location integration in Facebook has been unchartered territory, and now we’ve created a way that people can share where they are, while still maintaining control over their privacy,” said Bryan Trussel, co-founder and CEO of Glympse, Inc. “Glympse goes beyond check-ins to provide a tool that people can use in almost any location situation, whether it’s social or work related. By having real-time movement on a map, Glympse makes sharing whereabouts on Facebook and Twitter fun and interactive.”

Click/Scan to Download!

Users can determine whether they want to share their location with every friend, select friends, or a specific network. For those Facebook friends wishing to view a Glympse, simply click the News Feed thumbnail image. You’ll see that expand and turn into a dynamic map that tracks the sender’s movement in real-time, speed of travel, and any provided destination.

Other changes in the new release (v1.15) include a UI refresh and bug fixes.  Look for Glympse in the Android Market for free or scan the barcode to the right and download it immediately!

    Does this app allow you to post pics and vids too?

    BTW, not sure if it's a new thing or not but I really like the barcode scan idea.
