Previously, people could share their whereabouts with Google's old Latitude service, as well as its fated Google+ social network. That could be a little bit creepy, but it's opt-in, so you'd only turn it on if you wanted to make yourself easier to find. Facebook also shows you an estimate of how long it would take you to meet your friends if going by vehicle - that ETA is shared with others, as well.
