An increasing amount of social media is being tagged with the location of its creation. However, little investigation of how these tagged media can be used has been undertaken. We seek to exploit their auditory presentation in a system called PULSE. PULSE attempts to provide an understanding of the people, places and activities that are happening in the user's current locale. We outline the design of PULSE and how both message and meta-data can be implicitly and explicitly incorporated into an auditory display. We outline our plans for future evaluations to further consider how social geo-data can be aurally presented to users.
