Foursquare is largely known as a mobile application which allows you to “Check In” to locations using the GPS in your smartphone device.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. It uses game mechanics to give people points for checking in to locations. If you check in to a location often enough, you can become the Mayor of that location. If you check in often enough, you can oust the incumbent Mayor, one of the gamification elements designed to encourage people to check in often.
User can link their check ins so that they are also published on their favorite social media such as Twitter and Facebook.Foursquare can be particularly useful to use as a travel diary allowing users to look back on where they went in the past for example as a travel diary.Heading out? foursquare helps you and your friends make the most of where you are.
