This could be very dangerous. We're not so sure we're happy about this.
A new website is launching next week that is probably going to put more than a few people in Hollywood on edge. It's called JustSpotted.com, a website dedicated to tracking the exact locations of celebrities at any given time. The website will be working in conjunction with the information obtained from Twitter, using a "natural-language" filter to figure out from public tweets where celebrities have been spotted.
The site is so based off of Twitter that one investor of Twitter, who also gave money to Facebook and Google, have put money into the project themselves
Speaking of Facebook, the website, along with Foursquare, will also be aiding the new site with it's venture to seek out celebs.
CEO of the site, AJ Asver, quickly tried to shut down reports that the website would promote more "stalking" for fans. He explains:
"We're not asking people to change their behavior. The information isn't real-time enough for you to run over there and see them."
We're glad to hear about the latter, but you're kidding yourself if you don't think people are going to get hooked to this! Soon, it'll be an iPhone app and you'll just seen teenage girls cruising around town, trying to pick up Justin Bieber's trail!
We foresee a lot of trouble for them down the road, but then again, that is the genius of their website. They are using public information via Twitter. No crime in that!
What do U think? Will U be visiting this site when it launches next Tuesday?
