Fun foursquare facts!Posted: November 15, 2011
As promised, this post with offer some fun facts and insights into the world of foursquare. We will take a break from my exiting encounters and free stuff to learn a little more about this app:
1) Foursquare has over 10 million users! Are you one of them?
2) In April 2010 foursquare and the History Channel teemed up to help users learn historical facts of certain places they checked into. Users could earn a limited edition History Channel badge. I think this is an awesome way for these locative services to inform your reality.
3)You don’t have to have a smartphone to be on foursquare. You can check in various places at https://foursquare.com/mobile/checkin. Just bring your laptop and let your friends know you are pulling an all-nighter at College Library!
4) Foursquare has support for French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Japanese, Indonesian, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Thai.
Fact 5) Foursquare is awesome.
For the record, my boyfriend did finally beat me in check in points. But I caught back up after checking into the academic buildings today. 🙂
