What is Foursquare?
Using Foursquare via a smart phone, you can link up and hang out with friends who are already part of the fun. It tells you where your friends are, you can ‘check in’ at locations and venues and you can also contribute tips and hints about the places you visit. It’s a friend finder meets city guide concept loved by millions of users around the world.
When you ‘check in’ to a location or a venue, your friends get pinged a message to let them know where you are and what you’re up to. They can join you if they fancy or just keep up-to-date with the spots you’re loving! ‘Check in’ to one location or venue enough times and you’ll earn the prestigious mantle of ‘mayor’. A leader board lists the top users amongst your friends and other Foursquare users in your city. To check it out, visit: www.foursquare.com
