Yet another reason not to use Foursquare.

Reasons not to use Foursquare.

1. You annoy your friends with constant updates that they don’t care about at all.

2. You have a life.

3. People break into your house while you’re becoming the Mayor of some trendy dive bar.

PleaseRobMe.com is a site created to point out the logic flaw in location-based apps like Foursquare. That logic flaw? Criminals can simply follow you on Twitter and find out exactly when you’re not home, then go steal all your shit. Unlikely? Maybe. Possible? Absolutely.

Of course geo-location can be a useful technology for a lot of things, but publicly broadcasting your whereabouts might need some rethinking.
