Foursquare, a rapidly growing social networking site, is also a way to find special offers at businesses around the Milwaukee area.

What is Foursquare?

Foursquare states they are a “cross between a friend-finder, a social city-guide and a game that rewards you for doing interesting things.  We aim to build things to not only help you keep up with the places your friends go, but that encourage you to discover new places and challenge you to explore your neighborhood in new ways.”

How does Foursquare work?

Users “Check-in” at a location by using their smart phone or by sending a text message from their cell phone.  After checking in, Foursquare awards points and occasional “Badges” to users.  If a user has checked-in to a location more than anyone else, they will become Mayor of that location.  Users can also share “Tips” with other users, and create “To-Dos” as suggestions for yourself.
