Sprint 'social mapping'

Sprint has announced a partnership with Loopt, the self-described "social mapping" service currently associated with Boost Mobile. Members of Loopt are able to locate each other on their phones through GPS, complete with alerts whenever a friend happens to pass nearby. Users can also identify places and schedule events through the service, as well as share photos and profiles.

Because GPS represents a potential invasion of privacy, users can choose to edit their friends list directly from a phone, or hide themselves entirely. Loopt will be added as an option to over 25 phones in the next few weeks, at a price of $3 a month. [via CrunchGear]
