Friends geography map via zipcode.

Title
Friends geography map via zipcode.

Short, concise description of the idea
It would be cool to have a map of your friends.

Full description of the idea
I'd like to have a graphical map showing markers for each of my LiveJournal friends based on the zipcode they enter. I couldn't imagine this being very hard to implement. It sure would make one sweet paid feature. Also some stats would be cool. Maybe being able to see a list of your friends in the order of their distance.

An ordered list of benefits

  • It's easy to forget where your friends come from.
  • It's easy to just not know where certain places are compared to yourself.
  • I'm positive this would motivate many people into buying a paid account.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • The only issue I see is if the person lives outside the United States (not having a zipcode)... but you could place them on the map based on their country name.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Zipcodes! If there's a better reason for having zipcodes, I don't know it.
