I have been a Foursquare fiend since joining in January 2010. I love checking-in to new locations, claiming mayorships, racking up and points, and getting perks that are associated with using the application. I also have been somewhat of a Foursquare ambassador recruiting others and sharing the wonderfulness that is the Foursquare application. It’s probably the hottest geo-location app out there and you can have fun with it as well.
A few days ago, I logged onto Foursquare online to check a few things, and I found myself looking at my history of check-ins. It is so amazing the log of the places I have been since I first joined—the trips I’ve taken, the places I’ve eaten or shopped, and the places I visited that I had forgotten. Foursquare is almost like a time capsule, keeping up with the events in your life. While looking at your history, others could probably learn a lot about you.
For instance, I check-in to a lot to airports, which shows that I am an avid traveler. I also check-in to a lot at restaurants, which indicates that I am a foodie.
My badges also say a lot about me too. I have 37 badges including the Swimmers badge (for checking into beaches), the Player Place badge (for checking in with at least 3 people of the opposite sex), and the Ten Hundred badge since I checked in over 1,000 times.
By looking at my check-in activity, I think it would be safe to surmise that I am a traveling foodie that shops alot and enjoys technology. All of that would be correct.
I am somewhat of a Foursquare snob in that I try to only check-in to relevant locations. If I checked-in to every place I visited, I would have way more badges and points.
What does your Foursquare check-ins say about you? Are you a Foursquare user? Comment below and let’s discuss!
