The more time I spend on social media, the more I realize that I need to figure it out more in depth.
One of these realizations led me to finally join foursquare and figure it out. Foursquare just gave me one more reason to love my BlackBerry….
I would consider myself a light user. I don’t check in everywhere, every day. I do check in when I think I’m somewhere cool. For example we went to Dave and Buster’s for my fiance’s birthday and I checked in there. The next day I got a notification that Dave and Buster’s had started following me on Twitter. Yay!
Then I spent 5 days in the Seattle area over Spring Break and checked in basically everywhere (because I visited a lot of cool places!). Not only did I earn badges that way, a lot of the places started following me on Twitter too!
All in all, I have so far gained about 8 new Twitter followers because of foursquare in the month or so that I’ve been using it. I’m not so sure they actually care what I have to say, but it makes me feel good that they picked me.
