At least in Campus Crusade Twitter has barely gained traction among middle and late adopters. Signing up for something new that heavily depends on owning an iPhone or Droid is very rare.
However I see TONS of potential to use location based applications in ministry. Especially because places are one of the first things that connects people joining a ministry–you move to a new CITY, you then look for a church, you start COLLEGE, you look for a ministry.
There are approximately 250 regular readers of this blog and I’m wondering how many of you and what location based application are you using if any?
If you are what are you using and why?
If you are not I’d love to hear why not.
I’m using Foursquare and Gowalla because I have different sets of friends who use both services. I enjoy knowing the places they go throughout the week as it helps to get a better context of who they are.
To see the potential of what I’m talking about here’s a short video about Loopt’s new features.
