Dodgeball - a graduate project was started as graduate course project by two students.It is a geowebservice that lets users checkin their location at a bar,club etc using a mobile.Dodgeball then broadcasts this information to all your friends or your friend's friendwho are in the vicinity.These users receieve the a message such as "John is at the parkyou know him through Dan" on their mobiles.The service is now avaliabe in 22 cities.
I checked a few profiles most of them had "XX hasn't checked-in anywhere".Looks like location aware social networking is not as popular as I expected. Maybe its missing some cool features which would trigger their growth.
