This might be a little bit of old news, but I thought this video by Foursquare talking about their 1 Billion check-ins on the site was kind of cool! So, I made an executive blogging decision that I would share their video on this blog. The Foursquare video below is just cool and I needed to share it. Deal with it!
A Week of Check-ins on the Path to One Billion from foursquare on Vimeo.
It is amazing how many check-ins happen in a week on Foursquare these days. When I first started looking at Foursquare about 18 months ago there were about 4 million people on the site and very little activity in the Chicagoland area. That is probably why I never truly got as into Foursquare as other social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Youtube.
But with the rise of mobile marketing, Foursquare is going to take a front seat in how we do social along with Facebook Places. It will be interesting to see how everything turns out in the next few years for Foursquare.
