Foursquare is our favorite socializing app. We think it’s the best because it turns city exploration and your current location into a socializing experience!
Now you might come back at me with another question: “Why in the world would I want people to know where I am at all times?!”
Now to be fair, that is an excellent question and was my first reaction too, the first time I heard of foursquare. But this is exactly why I thought it was important to do a write-up on the quickly growing company:
First off, the foursquare app is free and can be downloaded right here. So right off the bat, you’re not going to have to invest any money into the app; just your precious time.
Next on the importance list is device compatibility. The team at foursquare has clearly made accessibility a top priority (which is always nice for socializing), and is available for free for: iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, palm, Nokia and more devices!
Next up is functionality: with foursquare, “users “check-in” at venues”, which can automatically be posted to Facebook and Twitter, as a way to keep your friends up to date, on your whereabouts. As you get used to foursquare, we guarantee you will be actively seeking your next “badge”, “earned by checking in at various venues”, and scouting out areas for a potential “mayorship”, awarded by checking in “to a venue on more days…than anyone else, in the past 60 day.”
Last on the list, is foursquare’s benefits: an increasing number of “venues” (places), offer both discounts and giveaways to foursquare users, just for checking in and staying on top of your location.
Give foursquare a try, and let us know what you think about it, below!
