Why all the fuss about Foursquare?
February 17, 2010 2 Comments
Recently I’ve hopped on the Foursquare bandwagon (add me!). When I get the opportunity I check-in to wherever it is I am (except home – who needs to know that?), I get points, unlock badges and even recommend places like restaurants if I want. It seems as though a few people are all up in arms about people pushing Foursquare updates to Twitter and Facebook. Why? I’m not sure. The only issue I can see is people not commenting on what they’re doing at “X” location. As with anything, you should add value by even posting a small comment.
Before Foursquare even came on the scene, people were tweeting about where they were at for a long time. All that’s added this time really is the link to their location which I’ve seen with the Myloc.me tagging locations for a lot longer. Foursquare has some great marketing potential as well, and it’s already catching on, so it’ll probably be here a while which means people should get used to it.
What are your thoughts on Foursquare, and do you think it’s here to stay?
