Yahoo Fire Eagle Launched
Yahoo has launched Fire Eagle, a location management service developed at Yahoo! Brickhouse in San Francisco.
Fire Eagle shares your locations with other sites and services safely through a secure server. The information is shared with a site which you choose and you will have full control over how many details, you want to share. For example city, state etc.
“Fire Eagle is about making everything on the Internet more useful, fun or interesting by adding the element of location,” said Tom Coates, head of product at Yahoo! Brickhouse.
“We’re here to help people take their location to the Web by giving them the ability to control how much detail about their location they want to share and which applications they want to share it with.”
Fire Eagle is build on an open platform and completely free to use. So, application developers can use the information to add location-aware features to their services.
Currently 50 applications have integrated FireEagle including Pownce.com, brightknife.com, Dopplr.com, Outside.in, Loki.com etc.
Pownce is a website where in you can send messages, share files, links, music and events with your friends.
“Fire Eagle allowed us to easily add location data to Pownce using their simple API,” Leah Culver, co-founder, Pownce.
“Pownce users can now say where they are and geotag their notes which adds a new dimension to the service.”
