addition of "location" variable for posting

addition of "location" variable for posting

Short, concise description of the idea
In addition to "mood" and "music", add the capability to enter your location at the time of a post.

Full description of the idea
Where one is at the time they post, much like their current mood or what they're listening to, can have an effect on what they particularly. Particularly with the advent of wireless technology, people are posting less and less from their desktops, and instead from inside coffee shops, on the bus, at the beach...pretty much anywhere they can get a signal. The addition of a location variable would be a convienent way to note this important elemtn of one's current state.

An ordered list of benefits

  • More concise description of one's state at the time of a post.
  • Additional variable of interest for those reading these posts
  • A convienent and organized way to keep track of where one has been.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • To use it would require users to upgrade their client.
  • Maybe people don't want others to know where they are?
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • An addional text box under "Post Options" within the client would need to be added. It may be simplest to add this to the online update form, with newer binaries of the software clients coming later.
