    Seems like that could lead to stalking, and the wrong people tracking you down, and stuff like that. But what do I know? lol Hopefully they have ways of preventing that.

    ^^paranoia^^ Most people won't be stalked if they say where they are every now and then. If you are afraid, don't use the location feature.

    I don't like knowing that everyone knows where I am.

    Odd. I dont really think its important for ALL my friends on facebook to know where im at at ALL times. However this makes me hope there will be improvements in the FB app *cause it sucks* as well as maybe an update in the site layout.
