Earlier this month at Social Media Camp in Victoria, BC I spoke with Dan Parks about location-based social media. Before we began the talk we asked everyone to check-in on Foursquare (4SQ) so that we could claim the coveted Swarm Badge which had not yet been unlocked in BC! (Part of the game of 4SQ is earning badges) After the critical mass of 50 people were checked in we were awarded the badge! It was a very exciting moment.
The first part of the talk is about why anyone and everyone can benefit personally from using location-based social media, especially Foursquare. The second part is yours-truly speaking about why businesses and business people should jump on board. The finale is the future of location-based social media and that’s the part that really floors people (myself included!).
Grab a glass of water or a cup of Jo and take a break (I bet you’ll learn something!)
