Google Latitude allows you to share your location with friends and view their locations on a map.

With Latitude, you can also:

– Share your location and status updates with the friends you choose
– See on a map where your friends are and what they’re up to
– Quickly contact them with text message, instant message, or phone call
– Control how much or how little location info you want to share with whomever you choose.
