In and of itself this information isn’t all that scary. A lot of people willingly share their personal information online, such as their city of residence or even current address. The biggest potential security issues can be related to people's posting of their whereabouts, such as publicly announcing “leaving for pesach now” coupled with the information gleaned from geo-tagging. Additionally, and in sync with the message of the video, I think bloggers might want to be especially careful when uploading pictures to their site from their smartphones.
