Foursquare is FUN!

I got curious what foursquare is before when I still don't have a smartphone. I always see my twitter friends use this app in my Twitter timeline and when I got a phone that is smart, I finally found out what it was.

According to Wikipedia, Foursquare is a location-based social networking website for mobile devices, such as smartphones. Users check in at venues using a mobile website, text messaging or a device-specific application by selecting from a list of venues the application locates nearby. Location is based on GPS hardware in the mobile device or network location provided by the application. Each check-in awards the user points and sometimes badges.

My foursquare profile.
I'm not a traveler or an explorer but since I got this app in my phone, I can't stay at home. lol. I always find a way to go out to any places and use this app to check in.

I enjoyed earning points and getting badges as awards for my check ins.

Oh, by the way, I am not from New York. I just posted it there for fun. Hahahaha! :)

Foursquare has something like Facebook too. You can like one of your friend's check in status or comment in it. And if you check in, you have options to share your check in to your other social networking accounts like Facebook and Twitter. If you have Instagram, you can use it too.

If you are in a place you're not familiar with, you can click that EXPLORE tab to look for best restaurant, bars, malls and many more.

Do you have foursquare account? If you do, maybe you'd like to add me? I'd be glad to be your friend there! :) Let's earn points and cute badges there. See you! ♥ comments

Foursquare really intrigues me as to how it works, but does it need a smartphone to enjoy this Apps?

I haven't tried out foursquare yet but I've been seeing a lot of friends who uses the app. I just don't feel the need to use it for now.

I have no idea what it is coz i don't have smartphones or any latest phones.. this momma blogger is so poor.. :( lol

Interesting but I never get to try it till now even if I've already owned a smartphone. I don't want the public to know my whereabouts. I'd still want to keep my location in private. I've read not so long ago that it's one way of safeguarding your own safety from God-knows-who. While still on travel, never disclose your specific location to anyone except for trusted family and friends. So there! ;-)
