ActiveRain Tutorials: WeePlaces- Track Your JourneysThrough Foursquare

WeePlaces- Track Your JourneysThrough Foursquare

I admit it, I find myself being a Foursquare junkie at times.  Ok, all the time. Becoming a mayor is as addicting as chocolate to a pregnant woman.  Not to mention the badges that you can grab and how that will continue to feed my addiction.

Foursquare Mayor BadgeToday I'm not getting into the ways to use Foursquare for business or why it is or is not a great place to increase your sphere of influence and grow a business.  Instead I just wanted to share a fun app I found that allows you to track your check-ins on a map.  I think this is a great way to help you promote to others places you feel are great places to visit.  Since I live in a resort area, I have people visiting all the time from out of town looking for a great place to go.  This map will be a great way to share quickly & easily the places I enjoy & frequent the most in my area.  That way they can check it out & see what I love to try out on their own.

In an area like Myrtle Beach, this can be really helpful for picking a restaurant.  Why you may ask?  Well, there are enough places to eat here that you could have 3 meals for a year and a half and never eat at the same restaurant twice. With all those choices, it is hard to know what is good and what may not be.  If someone sees I am a mayor of a local restaurant & have been there 5-10 times then they can easily recognize this must be a great place.  Check out my map below:

You may not be a fan of Foursquare, but at least I see how an application like this connected into my account could be a benefit to others.  Not to mention it gives me great conversations on both my Facebook & Twitter accounts with friends.

If you want to get the full effect, make sure you zoom out the map to see all the different areas I checked in.

WOW!   Jeremy, that's awesome!  Where did you do that?   At Foursquare?    That's a lot of eating - did you eat at all of those places?

Hi Jeremy, great little tool, I resist to try. I am to afraid to spend to much time on it for now...

Looks kind of cool...  Maybe my next phone won't crash and burn every time I fire up 4Square...

Lane, my blackberry sometimes goes goofy when I am running Foursquare too.  Dunno why.
