Position-Shift is a significant invention with global usage for anyone concerned about their location privacy."
Position-Shift is set to change mobile location security and privacy for everybody, including users of social networks like Facebook , Google+ , and Twitter to name just a few. People will have the ability to control their location in relation to others as a macro setting on a digital device or specifically within applications. It is a disruptive technology and a game changer - providing piece of mind to users as they interact with others using social media.
