Last August was when Twitter first announced it would offer geocoded tweets. With it, user locations are tied to their updates. That feature was rolled out in November. Two months later comes word that it's getting very little use. TheNextWeb reports that less than one-fourth of one percent of all tweets are geo-tagged. For every 430 messages that pass through Twitter, only one has a location--very, very few. Why? Read on for a few potential ideas.
Today OnStar, a GM company focused on in-car communication and security, announced what it calls an API. Though not yet released, nor totally open and perhaps not even an API, the move is certainly part of "car as a platform." Building apps for cars is a movement that hasn't seen much progress since Ford's announcement two years ago. Though there is still a lot of potential, especially with the car culture in much of the US, some have questioned whether safety will stifle in-car apps.
One of the most important--and too often forgotten--pieces of a successful API is promoting what developers have built. Doing so should be a win-win, as both platform and developer should benefit from third-party apps being discovered by users. Location-sharing service FourSquare just re-vamped its application gallery and now any developer can be included.
