Follow Me, Follow You


Tens of thousands of Hong Kong people have signed up for a service that enables them to monitor the movements of their husbands or wives by mobile phone, a news report said Monday. The 3.5 US dollar a month service called “Follow Me, Follow You” offers subscribers unlimited spot searches to track a person’s location by identifying the location
of their mobile phone signal.

It can only be used to track people if both parties consent to the searches being carried out on them in the densely populated city of6.9 million, however, the South China Morning Post reported.

Tens of thousands of people have signed up for the service since its launch in 2005, the newspaper said, and the subscribers were not all suspicious wives and husbands according to the company behind it.”Most subscribers are parents who use the function to search for their kids,” a Hutchison Telecom spokesman said. “Others use it to locate elderly parents who may have lost their way home.”

Other subscribers included people who wanted to locate their maids and, of course, people who want to keep track of spouses, thespokesman told the newspaper.
