Loopt’s Brian Knapp talks about privacy issues

Posted on Posted in general, LBS, Programming/Dev

E-Commerce Times has posted an interview with Brian Knapp, a VP at Loopt, the mobile social networking and mapping software company. The article is actually focused on how Loopt deals with privacy issues for its users, which is a different focus than the usual coverage that details the features or functionality. The issues raised in the interview, including what data Loopt collects and how they manage it, are going to become increasingly important as social networking applications actually begin to be adopted by a broader segment of mobile device users.
