Location based service can easily locate mobile station's position, which becomes a tool for connecting the virtual world and real environment. But current location service can notify user only bases on the location or time period. In real world, when people use location service, they always need some kind of help more than just know the position. So a traditional location based service can't fit user's demand very well. As it is well known, people are in some kind of relationships, which can help people when they are in difficulty. So in this study, the author will add some social features in the location based service. Some efforts will be taken to do some social functions in pure location service. An enhance location service with Web2.0 feature in it will be proposed. The architecture, key function principle and the privacy issue will also be presented. Moreover, a demo of the idea will be presented in the paper, using an ISG Parlay Simulator to implement a enhance location based service.
