It’s a sign of the times, as Palringo launches a suite of location services targeted at letting friends know the locations of other friends. Starting today, users looking down their contact lists see not only the location of their Palringo contacts—typically a town name—but also how far away those contacts are from them. And in a future update, Palringo will add the ability to be able to locate those friends on a map.
