Andrew Scott June 1st, 2010 Hmm, missing http://www.Rummble.com too ;-) #blatantplug Tardigrade May 31st, 2010 @MyLocator: Just see what is profitable on Facebook: Farmville and similar braindead games. The business segment is small compared to casual applications. Jo Dean May 30th, 2010 OK thats making a lot of sense dude. Lou http://www.online-privacy.de.tc MyLocator Â® May 28th, 2010 most are focused on nonsense gaming/check in features instead of becoming custom business utilities that transcend the internet and mobile seamlessly. Try to visit Mytown.com. mol May 28th, 2010 It is missing Yelp. It also does not address a great feature: photo uploads from the location (something Gowalla and Yelp have, but FourSquare is mysteriously lacking). Jason F. May 28th, 2010 Om – these are some slick infographics. Thanks! But why limit the conversation to location-based games and social networking apps? All the revenue opportunities you list are marketing/advertising/couponing. While that’s certainly a revenue generator of the future, what about other location-based services? For example, the TSYS acquisition of NIM or the recent TNAV IPO? Then there are the “Family Locator apps, http://sprint.com/familylocator and http://att.com/familymap.
