Having Fun With Foursquare

Have you discovered Foursquare yet? It's another form of social media that's catching on like wildfire and is as entertaining as it is informative. To "play" you need a smart phone that supports apps. When installed, the app uses the GPS of your phone and let's you know what stores, restaurants, etc are nearby. You then check-in, can add comments about your experience, and what's really unique about this app is that you can also share what you wrote to your Twitter and Facebook accounts. Because of this you can make one entry and update three of your forms of social media.

The game part of this is every time you check in somewhere you receive points, and the points add up to award you different badges. If you frequent a particular location a lot you can become the "Mayor", and some establishments give special rewards and perks to their mayors.

Check out our recent Foursquare entries on our Twitter page, @lifestylist, or better yet follow us and you can get our updates immediately.
