Sharing your location automatically yet discreetly using Google Latitude

If you want to share location data either publicly or with friends only, Google Latitude gives you some great controls on how you do that. I can create this badge as seen below that shows the public basic city information, while a small group of close friends can see a much closer look of where I am and I don't have to check in anywhere to make it happen. It is automatic as long as I review my cell phone map from time to time.
