Checking in and sharing your location requires an internet connection. This may involve the transmission of large amounts of data and related data traffic costs.

The terms of use of the social networking service apply to sharing your location on that service. Familiarize yourself with the terms of use and the privacy practices of that service.

Before sharing your location to others, always consider carefully with whom you are sharing it. Check the privacy settings of the social networking service you are using, as you might share your location with a large group of people.
