What Is Foursquare?
You might think Foursquare is just another social networking site It looks to me like it's the newest hot thing out there. This is a great tool for all of the social media people. It lets you share tips on coffee shops, bars or anyplace else. If you were to go to a café and ‘check in' on the site . This then leaves your location for friends to join you.
Some people might be unsure of this. Having people know where you are at all times. Is this a way of asking for stalkers? Or telling people my house is empty? But like with everything else on the Internet you have to be careful. Just remember everything and anything is seen after you post.
But for some it's very appealing. Foursquare users use this service as a way to see if their friends are near by and can meet up with them. Foursquare even has a game you can play. You earn points for checking in. With points you get badges. You even become mayor of the location if you checked in the most. Some location rewards their mayor with free drinks. In fact I'm a mayor of Proper and Red Pearl Kitchen. Let's see whom de throws me.
Businesses can actually use this tool as well. It can let you know who visits your business the most and what people think about your business. They could start using this as a way to advertise.
I can see Foursquare developing into something huge in the near future. It is something exciting for social media.
