Will Apple allow this from Facebook?
Seems like no such thing as privacy these days. Some Blackberry security and privacy would be nice. Slowly but surely we seem to be losing our rights to not being tracked.
Facebook Inc. (FB) is developing a smartphone application that will track the location of users, two people with knowledge of the matter said, bolstering efforts to benefit from growing use of social media on mobile computers.

The app, scheduled for release by mid-March, is designed to help users find nearby friends and would run even when the program isnít open on a handset, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans arenít public.

An application can use the CLLocation method 'startMonitoringSignificantLocationChanges' to continue to receive location updates even when the application is in the background.
The application can then start, update the location on the facebook servers and then exit again, without the user having to do anything.
I don't see any reason this wouldn't be allowed..
