Plazes

Plazes allows you to find out what others are up to and see what’s happening at different locations. Users share where they currently are, what they’re doing and post future plans. Posting this information can be done on Plazes.com or by mobile phone (via text messaging). Users can also join groups to stay connected with their favorite people and “Plazes.”

The idea behind the service is for everyone to be able to track the places, activities and people in their lives.

The service used to force users to download software which auto-determined user location. In May of 2007, they changed the way they handled location and a download is no longer required.

While not exactly the same, Plazes has many similarities to Twitter and Jaiku.
