TechCrunch: Apple LBS Social Networks Not Ready for Mainstream Usage

Mark Hendrickson comes to that conclusion in The State of Location-Based Social Networking On The iPhone. Among the things that need to be enhanced: location updates in the background (Apple does not allow this yet), stability, ability to invite friends knowing they are supported handsets.
