If you download photos from your smartphone to the internet, the GPS device in your smartphone also downloads geographical location information along with photo information. This enables viewers accessing your photo data to pinpoint your exact location. This might not be something you want.
Smartphones differ, but this GPS data can be disabled. This is an image heavy site because of the gunporn we want to share, but consider the above. I am told some digital cameras also record GPS data.
I got this information from my former company XO. I don't know anything more about it, but if I find any related printed material I'll post it.
