58 Fantastic Foursquare Fascinations

From Social Media Star Campaigns to Local Hotspot Apps

— December 31, 2012 — Business
These Foursquare finds cover a wide range of campaigns, events, news and interesting information regarding the popular social media site. For those unfamiliar with the Foursquare app, it is a check-in application that can be installed on your smartphone to alert others to where you are and keep a record of your favorite places and hangouts for future reference.

The social media medium has risen in popularity within the last few years. Earning badges and mayorships through ‘check-ins’ from your phone gains you access to elite information and interesting tips sent out from places that you have ‘liked.’ The information of your check-ins and likes can be used in a wide variety of ways by you, your friends or corporations looking to access data.
