17:29 EDTSBUXGoogle cancelled location-tracking ad project, Fortune says
Earlier this year, Google (GOOG) cancelled a project that aimed to track Google Maps users and send notifications to their phones after entering the vicinity of certain retailers, allowing potential partners such as Starbucks (SBUX) or Walgreens (WBA) to automatically highlight loyalty programs or discounts when a customer entered the store, reports Fortune, citing people familiar with the project. The project, known as "Google Here," was shut down due to concerns of being overly invasive as well as doubts about whether retailers were interested in the project, said the report. Note that on June 8, Facebook (FB) expanded its test of business "beacons," allowing retail partners to "beam" information to customers via in-store devices. Reference Link
