What is foursquare?

Foursquare is a four square, I mean: it is a location where you search for locations to search other locations inside a square called foursquare. It is a mobile social network application, founded by Dennis Crowley and Naveen Selvadurai and is based in New York City, in which you share with friends your location in any spot around the world by ‘checking in” via your iPhones , Blackberries, and Nokias, (called smartphones).
In addition, you can still connect your foursquare account to your facebook and Twitter account. By ‘checking in’ you are actually giving updates to your friends ‘where you are’ and what actually you are doing at that TIME and PLACE! This just awesome! You can actually update whomever you have on your list (make sure the people you ditched are not included) the place you are chilling at, few minute maybe a surprise…they all would join you! For that, I will not use it when I am in hide from a person, or a friend! But for any other reason I will be stuck in the foursquare location, chasing people, and updating them at the same time.
Above the process of installation and registration is effortless, very easy. You just need four clicks and you are in a worldwide cube, foursquare!
Visit the website and start adding tips, to-do list. It is so exciting when you actually have the opportunity to give feedbacks, comments, tips, and lists knowing that you are offering this to 4o million foursquare users around the world. I have a target in foursquare, I don’t want to enter this square without being at least a mayor of three or five places around the world, not only in my current city, Beirut. The three places in Beirut I would like to become the mayor of is ABC mall Ashrafiah, AlMayyas and Laziz Restaurant:)
