The Mayor of Where, or the Loser's Guide to Dominating Foursquare

Foursquare has become a battleground.  In this corner, wearing sequined trunks,  me.  In the other corner Tonia.

Tonia enjoys certain natural advantages:

  • She has fine motor skills, meaning that she can check in faster.
  • She actually goes places.
  • When she goes places she remembers to bring her phone.

But never fear.  Here’s my strategy:

  • Live in a small town.
  • Do not confine your check ins to bars, restaurants and nightclubs.  The supermarket, the hardware store, the gas station and your own home are perfectly valid check-in locations.
  • Having removed the battery or otherwise (temporarily) disabled your competitor’s mobile device, invite her bar hopping.
