Damit weiß Moves - und künftig auch Facebook - wo Sie sich wie lange aufgehalten haben.

Warum Facebook auf diese Daten scharf ist, ist klar:

Zu wissen, wer wann wo ist, lässt sich teuer vermarkten, zum Beispiel für Werbeanzeigen mit lokalem Bezug. In der Innenstadt mal kurz Facebook checken und dabei Werbung für den Schuhladen auf dem Weg zu bekommen – das könnte eine Zukunftsperspektive sein.
