Facebook places: bigger than Big Brother | Reportage

Facebook Places..IS it really that big of a deal right now?  I am two sided on the topic. 

I have arrested dozens of sexual predators.  My feeling is that very few get obsessed enough on 1 girl to take the time to physically track them down.  Yes I know that they are out there but I feel that about 75% of the sexually deviant men are using the internet to creep on photos and gratify themselves over the computer.  In those rare cases when predators are going to want to reach out and meet a victim they will find out where that victim is with or without Facebook places. 

Here is a brief description:  Using The application’s geo-spatial capabilities -of allowing people to see the locations you have checked into- would also challenge privacy issues relating to Location Privacy, particularly when involving a minor with a Facebook account. Location privacy is the ability of an individual to move in a public space with the hope that under normal circumstances their location will not be systematically and privately recorded for later use.
