What is Foursquare?

In their own words, "Foursquare is a location-based mobile platform that makes cities easier to use and more interesting to explore. By 'checking in' via a smartphone app or SMS, users share their location with friends while collecting points and virtual badges. Foursquare guides real-world experiences by allowing users to bookmark information about venues that they want to visit and surfacing relevant suggestions about nearby venues. Merchants and brands leverage the foursquare platform by utilizing a wide set of tools to obtain, engage, and retain customers and audiences."

Why do I care?

As mobile devices gain prevalence, location-based services are also growing in popularity. Understanding what our customers are using can help us understand their world. Plus, it's fun to try to become "mayor" of the library!

How do I get credits?

  1. Sign up for an account on Foursquare
  2. Check in to a Denver Public Library location (Many have already been created as venues - if the one you're in has not, create it!)
