Krissy, how/where did you find, to check your address?
I don't see a place...
Thanks!

I scrolled back (using the scroll on my mouse) so it showed the US and then zeroed in on my state, town, street from there.

Ah Ha! Thanks Krissy!
This is a "kinda' creepy" site!
It does show how photos can be tracked...

Hmm, yeah that's a little bit creepy, No pictures listed for me but several listed for houses down my street and it's only a small street.

I noticed a lot of "photo removed by user" so I guess there is a lot of people creeped out by this.

This is creepy and I thought this was illegal to use private information in this way, whatever the reason. I have to check we are not on when I get home and can use the Ipad.

That's the thing, Legally it's not private information, The locations are acquired from the Exif data that your camera embeds into every picture it takes. Once you post the pictures online they're then scanned for this data and pinned to the GPS co-ordinates found.

Creepy, but I suspect perfectly legal in most countries.

It's legal. The creator used cats as a way to show how easy it was to access information on people.

Crazy, but no cats anywheres in my neighbourhood or nearby neighbourhoods! Which is strange considering all the cat pictures I see

When I checked, nothing on any of mine, or our neighborhood!
A couple were listed a few short miles away...
Of course I don't post on FB, Twitter, etc!!
