Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The usage of social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr on mobile platforms is growing rapidly. In addition, the usage of LBS applications on smartphones is witnessing significant growth. Consequently, end-users have started sharing information such as their location through these sites. These websites, as well as smartphone manufacturers, have integrated with LBS providers to enhance the user experience. For instance, Facebook optimized its mobile app by introducing LBS such as Facebook Places, Location+, and Nearby Friends. The use of LBS in these social networking websites has enhanced the user experience considerably. These developments will bode well for the growth of the mobile LBS market worldwide.”

According to the report, LBA services are gaining momentum because of the increased adoption of LBS. LBA is the newest form of mobile advertising that uses LBS technology and targets users based on their current location. Many advertisers profit from this as they can accurately track the location of the users and send targeted information based on user location, purchase preferences, and other profile parameters. The advertisers are using this location platform to advertise their products and send customized advertisements to the customers. For instance, a clothing brand can send coupons to a mobile user if the person is close to one of its outlets. Alerts for flash sales, happy hours at a nearby pub, and special discounts offered to the customers at restaurants are important examples of LBA.

Further, the report states that users are worried about the risks attached to revealing locations, and despite several legal frameworks being in place, the challenge seems to persist.
