Mobile Location Disclosure

An interesting study ( PDF ) (partially from Berkeley GUIR, U. Washington, and Intel) about why & when people would want to share their location. Highlights are how people are willing to share their location based on their relationship with the requester (and where the requester lives), why the information is being requested, and what level of detail they should allow.

Warning: It’s a pretty dry submission to CHI 2005, but full of lots of info based on a group of 16 test subjects.
