We recently suggested that while traveling during the holidays it’s best to keep your social media status updates discreet in terms of where you are going and for how long. Has anyone seen Home Alone!?
Well the rage in popularity of geo-locating social media networks has officially blown discretion out of the water. Some of us enjoy sharing where we are at all times with hopes we may cross paths with a friend or maybe we just enjoy the game of becoming “Mayor” of your favorite bar or unlocking badges for hip restaurants.
This sharing of your location away from home has given rise to the inevitable PleaseRobMe.com. The site can be taken as a semi-serious parody on what they deem as irresponsible behavior. If you actively use Foursquare, Gowalla or any other of the upcoming location-sharing networks, you’ve been warned.

    You have some excellent ideas for bathrooms. That has been one of the recurring themes in my own life–looking for a way to make our bathrooms and our kitchen look really glorious, even though those rooms are much too small. One of the glories of the Internet, though, is that there is absolutely no dearth of ideas. Right now I have no idea of what I will ultimately do, but I keep hoping I will come up with something really slick.
