I just published a post over on the SecureState blog about how to hack your location using Facebook Places.  The post brings up some interesting questions about how social networks are going to have a problem with fake location check-in’s. In the meantime, it’s a way to have fun with your friends…:-)

    I am a graduate student at Purdue University and I am researching Security and Privacy using social media sites. I have checked out your page and downloaded your 2 white papers that were published. I was interested in finding out more information about this. Do you have any empirical data that can be shared as part of a research project involving Purdue? Everything is strictly confidential.
