Don’t forget to “Check In” to Ashley and Annie’s presentation!Posted: November 23, 2011
So I am super excited to tell you all about my fun foursquare adventure, and I know Annie has some awesome things to say about her social review site experiences! SO SHOW UP TO CLASS! Haha, just kidding I know none of you would duck out early for the holidays.
Anyway, I am still really happy that I was able to do this project. I would not have utilized foursquare the way that I have and I would not have looked at any of the other locative services either. I agree that this is a kind of collective intelligence that Levy was talking about as a service, and all of our projects are as a whole. Since I have heard the practicum presentations I have joined Twitter, an online support group, left secrets at Post Secret, and visited some chat rooms. I hope that I can share the benefits of foursquare with all of you and that some of you will utilize this service or other services like it.
Some questions I have:
Would you feel comfortable leaving tips and pictures for other random users to see?
How do you find out about new places to visit or eat?
What are the biggest benefits you see from using locative services?
