New Badges and a lot of Points!

So when l left Vegas this morning there were 28 people checked in to the LAS airport so that is a good number. The more l think about it l think one reason there were not more foursquare users in Vegas is because most people in this city are vacationing and if they don’t use foursquare normally they more than likely not going to use it just because they are in Vegas. I like checking in and taking pictures because my boyfriend can get a sense of the fun l am having while l am away. This trip also earned me two new badges. I checked in to severel places on the strip last night and earned the “cruncked” badge. This morning l decided to check in everywhere…the airport, the security check, the tram that brought me to my gates, the specific gate l was flying out of…and l earned the “overshare” badge. I am currently in Tennessee and l checked into this place and got extra points for it being my first check in in the state of TN. I have also earned extra points at all the places l checked into this weekend for being the first od ny friends to check in.

    Darn it, l forgot to mention how foursquare was useful on my trip. It was fun but it came in handy to. Me, the maid of honor, and the bride to be were running around the strip looking for a Walgreens and l used foursquare to find it. When deciding where to eat in the hotel l looked at tips other users had left, and when l tried something new l left a tip saying if it was worth the money or not, such as the buffet l went to. I said “It is expensive but had a huge selection and drinks are included in the price. Worth triying atleast once.” Foursquare is useful tool when in an unfamilar location. šŸ™‚

    I’ve always been a little confused on how to use Foursquare. I have the app on my phone and always receive friend requests, but can’t seem to figure out how to accept them and actually use the app. Whether it’s me or my phone causing these issues is to be determined. However, I like how you used foursquare to familiarize yourself with your surroundings and use it to your advantage. I like the idea of an app being able to help you locate places you need to find as well as read comments others have left in regards to whether the place provided good service, etc. I think this goes to show just how the internet and social media sites have connected us with so many people. The idea of finding out information from a stranger who uses the same app or site as you would have probably sounded crazy even a decade ago, but I like the idea of being so connected that you can help one another out, even if you are not in the same place at the same time. It seems to me that foursquare is bringing people together in new, interesting ways. Maps are a thing of the past, apparently. All you need now is foursquare… Guess I should figure out how to use my foursquare app!
