More than a quarter of all US adults (28%) use mobile or social location-based services of some kind. This number includes anyone who use phones to get directions or recommendations based on their current location; use their phones to check in to locations using geosocial services such as Foursquare or Gowalla; or, who set up social media services such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn so that their location is automatically included in their posts on those services.
Read the full report here for more details on how often each of these different location-based services are used and a demographic breakdown of who is using them.
