Virtualy Spacial: The Reality of Foursquare

FourSquare is a location-based geo-tagging game, played mostly from a users’ mobile phones. While in a location, the user launches the application on their phone or navigates to the web site and is prompted with locations nearby at which they might be. There are incentives to entice users to “check in” to locations frequently, such as special deals for the “mayor” of a location. A User becomes the “mayor” when the user has checked in the most to a location within a period of time. So, we can get an understanding of how frequently users of FourSquare are at a venue based on the number of check ins at that venue.
