That is a stunning statistic. We had spotted some interesting statistics around location based services before – we spotted this today:

“Location-based social networks were one of the top five trends of 2010. Nowadays, location is baked into pretty much everything that developers do. Mobile and social apps are location-enhanced, not location-based. You still can, however, “check in” somewhere using geosocial networks Foursquare, Gowalla and Facebook Places. Location-based services like Yelp utilizes the geographic position of your mobile device to figure out what’s nearby.”
