The chances that someone wants to spend time and money on tracking you in particular are very little.... However..

I already published a couple of PhotoSpheres in Maps so my friends could see them as intended (not a distorted rectangle) And besides the obvious geolocation of the photo, I have all of my location reporting Turned off all the time...

There are more chances of you being tracked using your iPhone btw

This is really cool. Download the app Sphere 360 or something. I can't remember what its called, but if you search "photo spheres" in the google play store, it will be the 2nd or 3rd one.
