Please, Rob Me!

Home owners could unintentionally be exposing their empty homes to crime when posting their whereabouts on social network sites.

Two developers have created a website called PleaseRobMe that lists the locations of 'empty houses out there'. The site extracts information from players of the online game Foursquare, which is based on a person's real world location.

The developers designed the website to prove a point about the dangers of sharing precise location information on the internet.
