foursquare: how to check in with friends?

If you do not want to share your location with friends

This seems to be a popular question among users regarding foursquare. How to check-in with friends. To break it down simply the question is this. How do I check-in with friends when we are at the same location. for those of you who have just started using foursquare this might be one of the questions you have. Because when you check-in to a particular place and you find your friends also there you would like to check-in with them. 

This is something that happens automatically. The App already knows who is checking-in to the same place and automatically includes your friends with you once you check-in. There is really nothing that needs to be done and this is an automatic process. foursquare will automatically include your friends with you once you check-in to a venue.

Please leave a comment to continue the discussion.

Foursquare Events - Collective check-in and sharing for Movies, Music and Sports

Foursquare have launched their newest update: FourSquare Events. So what exactly is FourSquare events and how does it work. with hundreds and thousands of events being held adn thousands of people attending it is only logical that Events on FourSquare is the next big thing. To make Events a success FourSquare now has a number of partners including ESPN, and SongKick for concerts. 

FourSquare says that with more than 50,000 events happening in the coming few months. You will be able to check-in to the event a few hours before it starts. That way people can use the event which appears and check-in rather than sending individual check-ins to their friends. This clears up a lot of clutter on their UI. This way big events are added to FourSquare and people can automatically check-in using the one feature event.

With Events for movies you can also see which of your friends viewed which movie and if you friends actually say the movie you want to check out. This comes as a whole new way of checking out the movies and who of your friends have see what.

With Events for Music you can begin to see what your friends taste in music is like and which concerts they attended.

With Events for Sports you can check out which events your buddies have attended and which events there are at now.

FourSquare events is now on the iPhone with no upgradation needed and coming to all other platforms soon.

How to become a mayor in Foursquare

Becoming a mayor in Foursquare is the simplest thing. You need to have visited a certain place the most number of times. In Foursquare terms this is known as a check-in. Therefore there is a simple formula to be applied, mayorships are based on the most days with check-ins in the past 60 days. So if you check-in more than once on the same day it is still calculated as 1x. Therefore to become mayor you will need to have the most number of check-ins. So if there is someone who has checked in more days that you, they get the title of mayor.

There is however a lot of freebies to help you on your way as many bars and cafes are now offering "Mayor Specials" like free coffees, discounts and other goodies. It therefore pays to be a mayor as you get a lot of free stuff. This of course is not guaranteed but there are goodies available in popular places.

(Hint: if you want to become mayor, you will need to have uploaded a profile photo to your account via your settings page)
