Plenary
Location: Ballroom III - VI

As the first generation of location-based apps are maturing, we are witnessing new uses of location from new categories of apps. Music, book, and news apps are beginning to include location features to bring social networks into their user experience and to increase the lifetime of their users. We will review some of these examples and discuss what this growth means.
