  • Patent number: 10310090
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and machine-readable media for determining a location of a mobile device from different sources of location data is provided. The system may be configured to store current location data of a mobile device, the current location data associated with a first source of location data. The system may also be configured to obtain location data from a second source of location data, determine whether a first accuracy indicator of the current location data overlaps with a second accuracy indicator of the obtained location data from the second source, and update the current location data of the mobile device with the obtained location data from the second source if the first accuracy indicator of the current location data does not overlap with the second accuracy indicator of the obtained location data.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 8843528
    Abstract: Implementations of the present disclosure include obtaining one or more queries, processing data stored in a data store based on at least one query of the one or more queries to identify a plurality of users, the plurality of users sharing a commonality that is a subject of the at least one query, generating one or more query-based social circles, the plurality of users populating a query-based social circle of the one or more query-based social circles, the query-based social circle being directed to the commonality and defining a distribution list for distributing digital content provided by one or more users of the plurality of users, and transmitting social circle data corresponding to the query-based social circle to display a representation of the query-based social circle to at least one user of the plurality of users.

  • Publication number: 20110238762
    Abstract: Some techniques feature a computer-implemented method for messages associated with a user location. The method involves determining, by a mobile computing device, an estimated geographic location of the mobile computing device. The method includes receiving, at the mobile computing device, one or more messages associated with an area within the estimated geographic location, where the one or more messages include messages posted by users of a system that associates messages that those users posted about the area within the estimated geographic location. The method involves providing, on a display of the mobile computing device, one or more posted message icons that are presented in a layer over a map, where the one or more posted message icons represent the one or more posted messages. In a system, the one or more posted messages may not appear on mobile devices after a predetermined amount of time from their respective postings.
