Yahoo announced the launch of its Fire Eagle open platform today that allows users to display their location on the web, while giving them control over how their location information is displayed. The platform provides clear protocols on when location information can be updated or accessed.

Users can allow access to the location information with Web, mobile or desktop applications that update their location automatically. Users can also update the location information manually and hide themselves when wanted.

"Fire Eagle is about making everything on the Internet more useful, fun or interesting by adding the element of location," said Tom Coates, head of product at Yahoo! Brickhouse. "We're here to help people take their location to the Web by giving them the ability to control how much detail about their location they want to share and which applications they want to share it with."
