Have you checked out checking in?
When you’re out and about, with your smart phone of course, you can share and save the places you visit with Foursquare. It’s a free mobile and web application that 20 Million people worldwide are now using to get personalized dinner recommendations from their friends and others at restaurants, deals at local businesses and exclusive coupons.
The future of business is all about location, location, location.
But can Foursquare be used for social good too?
Sure it can. Here’s how:
#1 Create awareness in your community
Make your organization’s location a destination on Foursquare. How often do you hear that people have walked or driven by your location for years and had no idea about all the awesome things you do?
Here’s a chance to provide some details about who you are and the good you do! It’s also a great opportunity to provide a forum for others to leave comments.
With Foursquare, people are the search engines! Help them find and find out about you. You can add advocacy alerts to let people who are nearby know that you are looking to recruit volunteers, about current needs you may have, service you offer or campaigns you may be running.
