Location Based Services: In Numbers

June 23, 2011 11:35 am

We spotted these stats today:

1. In May, the Pew Research Center found that only 4 percent of American adults use such services to share their location.
2. Foursquare is holding its ground. The company said this week that it had hit 10 million registered users
3. Foursquare is growing faster than similar start-ups. Gowalla, another check-in service based in Austin, Tex., has about one million users, while Loopt, a rival mobile location service, has more than five million.
4. Google says its Latitude service has 10 million users who were active in the last 30 days, though that includes people who used it on PCs.
