It's a little weird but Microsoft is working on a new friend tracking feature in an upcoming app People Sense for the Windows Phone devices and is internally referred as "Buddy Aware".
With this app, Windows Phone owners will be able to share their location in real time with their friends and family. The location sharing will also offer step-by-step navigation to the contacts. Quick shortcut for instant messaging, voice calls, and support integration with other third party apps will be anchored inside it. In a way, calling and messaging would be possible right inside, without having to switch between apps.
People Sense app is quite similar to Find My Friends app for iPhone and many others on the Android platform. In fact, Google had a similar implementation named as Google Latitude which was discontinued in August,2013.

It's a little scary how much your Android device and of course, Google, knows about your location. At least with Google, they're upfront about how your information is used. But what about with other apps?
Many third-party apps asked for location information in their permissions list. If you'd rather keep your location private, read on to find out how to limit what those apps see, including Google. After all, do your games really need to know where you ate dinner?
Limit Location Access By App
Go to Settings > Location and scroll down to see which apps currently access your location data. If you see any apps you want to restrict, download AppOps from the Google Play Store.
Bring up the app once installed, select any app you want restricted and switch Location to off.
Stop All Tracking
It's much simpler to stop all tracking. Just go to Settings > Location. Toggle the Location setting at the top to Off. That's all.
Location information isn't required to use your device, but it does boost performance for some, such as Google Maps. Still, you have final say on your privacy, so restrict any apps that you don't want accessing your information.
Another secret program where the US government compiled and stored mountains of call data was revealed in a filing related to a case alleging a man was attempting to illegally export electronic equipment to Iran.
In the filing, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), stated that it used "administrative subpoenas" to gather meta-data of US-based calls to foreign countries that were determined to have a demonstrated nexus to international drug trafficking and related criminal activities.
As to which foreign countries were on the list was not revealed, but the DEA did grant that Iran was one of those nations. The filing outlines outgoing call activity, but the program also gathered data of incoming calls to the US from foreign exchanges.
The data collection for this program began in the 1990s and was shut down in August 2013, with the DEA saying that it no longer collects bulk records and that the database has since been deleted.
Naturally, civil liberties and privacy advocates are not pleased with the revelation of this news. Patrick Toomey of the ACLU says this activity proves "the government has extended its use of bulk collection far beyond" terrorism and national security investigations.
The DEA embarked on this program following what could be argued as unintended consequences from a laws passed by Congress to empower the agency in the so-called "war on drugs." However, it is being argued that the DEA has pushed the envelope away from what was intended to be "specific, targeted requests for information" and instead turned things into a dragnet of data collection.
