Rumors have been doing the rounds is Facebook is onto something on the location front. TechCrunch has noted snippets of code from Facebook’s touchscreen version touch.facebook.com which point to a feature that can pull in information regarding the users’ latitude, longitude, altitude, heading and speed.
In a more implicit confirmation of the same, the company has communicated the following to TechCrunch
“There are currently no plans to add marketing partners to this product. We may consider working with marketers to enhance the experience in the future, but have no plans to do so at launch.”
We wonder what this product is going to be.[via TechCrunch]
