Foursquare, 4square, 4segisama !!

Foursquare is one of the hottest Internet companies around aside of Twitter &Facebook

Question, But what is it? What’s it for? How you get started?
Foursquare is primarily for letting your friends & family know where you are and figuring out where they are. Secondarily, it’s for collecting points, prize “badges,” and eventually, coupons, for going about your everyday business.

What Else if Fun?

You’ve probably seen one of your friends brag about being the new “Foursquaremayor” of a certain location. Whether you are visiting a local bar or checking out the latest restaurant, the Foursquare app helps you connect with friends or find new things to do in your hometown.

What is a Foursquare Mayor?

You earn points for each new location you check into on Foursquare. Get enough points and you’ll earn badges like “Super User” or “Explorer.” If you check into one location more than anyone else, you become the “Foursquare mayor” of that location, but that title is stripped if someone checks in more than you. Some locations offer goodies for mayors of Foursquare, including free drinks or restaurant discounts.

Unlocking Foursquare Badges is FUN!

Unlocking Foursquare badges has become a hobby and even an obsession for many of the active Foursquare users.
Read : A general tip would be not to use Foursquare and tag your home. I have seen many using this to become the mayor of their home or room. If you do so, then everyone will know where you stay and this does not go well with the ladies as you will most probably invite stalkers and so on. As the app lets you connect with your Facebook, you may also want to screen who’s following you too. Your details are also available to friends and followers if you allow it to be shown. Meaning your mobile number and so on. You can set this on the main FSQ web page under your account – privacy.

Foursquare is often associated with U.S users. But in actual fact, Foursquare is huge in Southeast Asia too
Here’s a quick run down of Foursquare in Southeast Asia:
  • Indonesia has 312,000 Foursquare users and also a Badge Mafia to “reward” users who would do anything to get badges on the location-based social network.
  • Malaysian budget airline MASFirefly, has more than 4,000 people following itsFoursquare page.Malaysia has 136,000 Foursquare users.
  • Singapore has 48,000 users and has a dedicated Foursquare user community who worked together to organize Foursquare Day 2011. In Twestival 2010,Singaporeans collaborated to earn the Swarm Badge as a team.
  • In Thailand, a bank created an exclusive debit card just for Foursquare fans. Thailand has 152,000 Foursquare users. Any geek would want to have one. Picture, courtesy of visible banking.
