A Solution For Sharing Your Geodata on Buzz

Sharing very accurate geodata on a public Google Buzz stream is a bit unnerving especially when you are “Buzzing” from home.

So what if I still want to share my location but not let the whole world know where my front door step is?

Why not have an option to let the user choose the accuracy of the geodata being shared?

There is already the option to not include the data or to choose a known location on Google maps, like my local police department, but that’s not enough.

Why not have an option to share your location as the center of town.

Currently if you want a solution like this, you can select a location that is near you but not your front door step.

I hope to see better control over location sharing in Google Buzz in the future.

Until that time I am going to disable automatic sharing of my location and choose when to share.

What do you think about sharing your geolocation?

Why or why don’t you share it?

Do you have an idea to solve this problem?
