iOS 5: Use Siri with Find My Friends iOS devices
If you use Find My Friends, you can ask Siri to locate your friends for you.

Simply say 'find my friends' to locate friends near you. You can also ask for friends by name, saying 'find [friend name].' This also works with relationships, like 'find my wife.'

To top it all off, you can say 'hide me from my friends' to hide your current location—great for last minute holiday shopping trips!

[crarko adds: Yet another example of the wonders of Siri. My prediction is that the next version will be enabled to shop for you, at least in iTunes, the iBookstore and the App Store.]

At the risk of sounding thick, what would I say to show myself to friends again? "Show myself to my friends"? Sounds pretty scary.

When you hide yourself, Siri says:

"Ok, I won't tell anyone where you are. Say, 'don't hide from my friends' when you want to be found again. "

Everything Siri does when you ask to find your friends is done on Apple's servers, determine where you are, where your friends are, who your friends are. Don't you have any concerns about your privacy?

The entire Find My Friends service is done on Apple's servers, whether you use Siri or not. How else would it work?

Of course, the sad part is when Siri answers, "Sorry, you have no friends."

It would have been a help to mention that Find My Friends is an app, and that it only works when you have upgraded to iCloud!
