In the short time Geofeedia has been open, beginning with a $200,000 seed round in 2011, business is booming. The FBI, DEA, McDonald’s, Dell, The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, and others have signed up for the subscription-based platform.

That’s because marketers wishing to gauge the sentiment about a retail chain, a newly opened restaurant, or a skate shop in a particular neighborhood, for instance, can do so based on the specific locations of customers — or potential new ones.
The good news for those wishing to opt out of seeing their name on a virtual push-pin in their hometown is they can use their privacy settings on Facebook, Instagram, and other social media services to the fullest extent. Doing so means their photos and musings would theoretically be off-limits to Geofeedia clients. But this isn’t so if a friend saves them and then reposts into the ether.
