If you haven't used or even heard of the mobile location-based services such as Foursquare and Gowalla then you are in the minority. Such services, in case you don't know yet, are used to tell the world where you’re visiting,

Toronto-based Sysomos is a leading provider of social media monitoring and analytics software. They released today a free service called FourWhere, that mashes-up locations and comments from Foursquare with the Google Maps API. There is no word yet on when FourWhere will be Gowalla-friendly.
