MeMap is a new iOS application that allows Facebook users to see which friends are around and what they’re up to, “without any hassle.” I suppose that “hassle-free” approach is the key selling point of MeMap, cause they don’t gather data from other location-based social networks like Foursquare, Gowalla and Buzzd. In that sense, you could use Facebook’s own app, but I assume the idea here is to show the Facebook Places data in an easy to comprehend way.
I agree with MeMap’s pitch that people don’t want to join new social networks, but I’m not sure relying solely on Facebook Places is good enough. The ability to visualize location-based data my friends are already sharing is something I could be interested in.
Additionally, MeMap also offers single tap check-ins, but isn’t “always on,” and has “sophisticated privacy features” that even let users delete all their personal data. Moreover, when users check-in to your favorite locations, the application also offers a fun, light weight scoring system for those who like to compete and earn rewards…
