If you haven’t heard of the newest social media craze you have to check it out! Foursquare is a cross between a friend-finder, social city-guide and a game that rewards you for doing interesting things.
The way it works is you “check-in” to the location you are, whether it is a bar, park, town/city or even the Leaning Tower of Pisa! How does Foursquare know where you are? It uses the GPS on your Smartphone such as iPhone, Blackberry or Android, when you log on it shows you all the places around your current location or you can search for the location you are at if it doesn’t show up on the list.
The benefits from this are endless, you could go anywhere in your city or an unfamiliar place and check out all the places that show up when you log into Foursquare. I bet you will go to places you have never been to before! You can then see who is at the same location you are at and make new friends!
