Integrate Google Latitude with Your Google Profile


If you want to display the location from Google Latitude on your Google profile, follow these steps:

* set your location using the iGoogle gadget or the mobile application.

* enable the public location badge, by selecting "Enable and show city-level only" or "Enable and show best available location". You should be aware that your location is now publicly available and it can displayed in a variety of ways using Google's API.

* edit your profile and select "Display my Latitude location". Google mentions that "your location appears on your profile, below your name, occupation, and city where you live, as long as you've updated it on Latitude within the last 24 hours."

In other news, Google started to show rich snippets for the results from Google Profiles. Google extracts structured data about jobs from profiles.
