Foursquare is something that I haven’t gotten into- mainly because I don’t like the idea of people knowing where I am, and what I’m doing… which is what happens when you check in places. The aspect I DO like, however, is the competitive edge… but I’m pretty much a homebody so I highly doubt I’ll be able to become mayor of anything except an IMAX theater and friday’s… which I frequent often. It’s a REALLY awesome idea, and I wish I was more on board with the application. When there’s more features and more of a point to it, I will surely join.
Anyway, Foursquare Day is occurring in Tampa Bay (where it originated) tomorrow night. A colleague of mine (Thao) and I are going to go work a vendor booth there so we can get involved because our company in part work with social media as well. We are also donating the prize of a free ticket to our Search & Social Spring Summit, so make sure you show up and check in tomorrow at the 4sqday event!
We just found out that Jessica from Girls in Tech (who we’ve been in contact with) was on Fox news talking about the event… which is pretty damn awesome! The creator of foursquare day was also there… this is just a really cool movement and I can’t wait to see what goes on tomorrow!
