What is geo-fencing?
Geo-fencing is a technology in which you can create a virtual boundary around a real world geographical location. It uses a set of GPS coordinates to create this virtual boundary in order to define a region of interest.
When should it be used?
The region of interest can be used when creating a Term to aggregate all geo-tagged content within this region thus creating a localised stream of content.
Which Social networks support location data?
The social networks supported are Facebook and Twitter.
In order for users' content to be aggregated under the geo-fencing option they need to have their location settings turned on as well as ensure the location is selected on their post. More information about how to do this can be found here for Facebook and Twitter.
Are all browsers supported?
Geo-fencing is currently supported by Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer from version 9 onwards.
