A survey of 'young social' and 'professional' users of location-based services in the UK
The objective of this study was to assess the response to location-based services (LBS) by three key demographic groups within the United Kingdom. This study took the form of a survey of relevant demographics, attitudes and consumer behaviour undertaken via a web-based survey. Results are based on over 1200 respondents, filtered and segmented into three demographic groups who are typically early adopters of new technology. There were positive attitudes towards a range of LBS, with the major exception being location-based advertising. There were mixed views towards location-based gaming and safety camera information. There were low levels of awareness of many services. The levels of use were typically under 20% for all types of LBS.
