TruTricks Notes: This is a very funny post from YepYep that gives some great examples of places that you DON’T want to be mayor of on Foursquare. Foursquare is an interactive social media game that designates one person the title of “mayor” if they are the most frequent visitor to a certain venue, however some venues might not be so great to claim.
If you’re not familiar, Foursquare is a location-based social networking application for mobile devices. It enables users to “check in” at any location, and they get points, badges, and (if lucky) the title of mayor for doing so. All of this activity is broadcast via the user’s Twitter feed, so the world always knows where they are. In other words, it’s a douchey, narcissistic tool for projecting your coolness and details nobody cares about. Seriously, nobody.
Since we’re tired of repeated 4sq updates from people at Starbucks, the mall, eating sushi, that indie record store, or the soup kitchen, we thought we’d look into the places that don’t seem to make the 4sq cut:
Sex Show or Strip Club
Nail Spa (for Guys)
