It's Taking Over The World, So Let's Use It to Make Money!!!!

You can’t run from it.  You can’t ignore it.
You can’t hide from it. You must join it.
Social media is everywhere. 
You can argue the fact, but you would be wrong!!
My blog post on The Social Revolution explains it, when it started with Facebook.  Facebook is an epically growing trend that will never be stopped.  Twitter capitalizing on the business world, as well as they can.
Now, move over Facebook and Twitter, here comes Foursquare.
Foursquare in my opinion is amazing for business to get involved with there are just too many benefits for a business to be involved with them and no down falls.
Wiki says Foursquare is; Foursquare is a location-based social networking website, software for mobile devices. Users "check-in" at venues using a mobile website, text messaging or a device-specific application.[2] They are then awarded points and sometimes "badges."
Now, Foursquare is still quite new and is growing every day.  With people like myself every day helping develop the locations and checking-in everywhere, I think Foursquare is nothing of what it will be in one year from now.  There is an article that says Foursquare will overtake Twitter, for daily users.  Here is the link.

Will Foursquare become the new twitter?  It's up to you!!!
Business can team up with Foursquare, giving out awards for customers that, checks in or even creating a badge they can obtain by doing something at the store.  Foursquare also has other aspects like the person whom signs in the most in one month becomes the mayor of that location and some stores are even offering discounts to their mayors.  Here is an article on how Starbucks is teaming up with Foursquare. 
In my opinion, if a business doesn’t use Foursquare or if Foursquare is gone in a year, I will be extremely shocked, I will even be shocked if I don’t see it improve in the next month or two.  In the Future i think you will not make money without it.
Foursquare can be monitored on the computers but you need to downloaded and can be done from any type of phone to be able to check-in to locations.   You will not be able to check in if you are not in the location.
Foursquare has an option to leave tips for others to read; no matter whether they are good or bad, the truth need heard.  Foursquare will be amazing for bring bad business down and rising he better ones.
If our local store owners were to jump on these opportunities, they could get a head start on this big corporations, and maybe even be able to take more of a piece of pie when it comes to sales.

What is more important? Money or Time?  because it only takes a short time to learn these skills, which could make you much more money!!!!

I am addicted, I will become the master of Foursquare.
