The Beat

The popular social photo service Instagram has had much to contend with at the moment, and now it seems there’s more to come.

Recently, a new service called The Beat, made ​​from Rutgers Social Media Information Labs, connects geotagged photos uploaded to Instagram with Google Maps Street View feature. The result is a frightening accurate location based service, which tells you exactly where a picture is taken, allowing you to rotate around the camera, so you can scout around the area.

The service is totally legal, and you can see where pictures have been taken just seconds after it have been uploaded, and should probably be a reminder on what you will publish in the future.
