Vodafone UK customers can now "check-in" to Foursquare, one of the hottest social networking phenomenon, on their mobile phones.
Vodafone UK customers can now access Foursquare's new mobile website on any mobile internet enabled handset directly through the Vodafone MyWeb or Vodafone live! on older phones. They can also text "FOURSQUARE" to 97886 to receive a link to the mobile site.
Foursquare apps are also available for the iPhone, BlackBerry and Android devices. When using Foursquare standard data charges apply. To see how you can access and use Foursquare from any mobile internet enabled phone go here.
Foursquare is a social network that enables people to connect and share information about their favourite places based on their location. Points and badges are awarded for "checking in" at venues, allowing users to compete on a leaderboard against their friends. The user that checks in the most times to a venue becomes its "Mayor" and remains in that position until they're ousted by a rival.
Users can create a "To Do" list for their private use and add tips to venues that other users can read, which serve as suggestions for things to do, see or eat at the location â?" which is great for people visiting a new place for the first time.
Users can opt-in to receive real-time updates to keep abreast of what their Foursquare friends are up to. It's also possible for customers to synch Foursquare with Twitter and Facebook to post location-based updates to their other friends.
