Group messaging services have grown in popularity with mobile phone users. These tools enable people to communicate with their real life network, making plans and other group decisions in real-time. GroupMe co-founder Steve Martocci will share how mobile apps can leverage location-sharing features to empower groups to more effectively communicate, as well as discuss how that opens the doors for businesses to impact those group decisions.
