Foursquare.com, a new social media / social networking site that is part game, part friend tracker, part review service hit Canada like a storm a couple of weeks ago when they launched in Vancouver.
Since the service launched “more than 3,000 venues and 1,500 users” have been added in Vancouver.
Yesterday I was interviewed by Gillian Shaw of the Vancouver Sun and was quoted in an article about Foursquare that was published today.
Here’s the quote:
Vancouver Web marketing consultant Adam Killam doesn’t mind sharing his whereabouts with friends on his social network. When he tweeted his intention to meet a friend at Earl’s in Yaletown and checked in with Foursquare when he got there, the manager sent free beer to their table.
“Especially being in the technology community, we all hang out in the same places and we want to meet. If you have a secret meeting in a shady part of town you may not want to share it,” he said, laughing.
