Foursquare, the world’s most popular location-based mobile platform, now has over 7.5 million users. It’s recent and continued growth has made it a key ingredient in many people’s and organization’s social media mix. Its growing popularity is attracting more and more national media attention; furthermore, foursquare is continuing to innovate by adding new application features for consumers (like explore), adding new tools for claimed businesses (like additional special capabilities), creating new badges (like the many offered at SXSW), and updating their point system.
Now that there are over 7.5 million users, we are finding more and more people looking for ways to learn more about foursquare. Some have found the increasingly popular podcast from AboutFoursquare (that is usually recorded Sunday evenings and posted every Monday morning) and the great TweetChat #4sqCHAT, the Twitter chat session started by @4sqINDY that is held over Twitter (globally) at 9pm EST (GMT -5:00) each and every Monday. Yet, others still do not know! So, how can we inform and engage these people? Read the rest of this entry »
Foursquare is all about helping you find new ways to explore the city. Up until now you’ve been able to do that by checking in to venues and adding friends. Several cities have built networks to help Foursquare users connect with each other, earn badges, and connect with businesses locally. Now it’s time to unlock new territory – The World. We believe that Foursquare will be more fun by connecting and learning from its users, fans, fanatics, and addicts…. you. Everyone has an important perspective to share.
That’s where #4SqCHAT comes in. Every Monday from 9-10P EDT (see below for other time zones) we’ll chat up Foursquare on Twitter. Every week’s chat will have a topic announced on @4SqINDY’s twitter page.
We want you to hear from you!
We recommend joining the chat on tweetchat.com/room/4sqchat by signing in and connecting to your Twitter, FaceBook, or LinkedIn account. You could also follow the hashtag by searching for it on twitter. Either way – we hope you join in on the conversation.
We’ll post the transcript of the chat on this site the next day. One lucky participant from #4SqCHAT will also be featured in a special shout out the next day on Twitter.
See you Monday! In the meantime, keep checking in!
