I’ve been on Foursquare for a couple of weeks now and actively (read: remembering) to check in during the last two to three weeks. I am now finding the value in this app, a geo-tagger and my way of keeping track of the places I visit in Melbourne as well as seeing where other people go for recommendations. As a new(ish) kid in town with plenty to see, Foursquare is becoming a novel way to log the cafes and restaurants I visit.
At this stage I have only checked in to food places but I would like to start checking in to some other places as well, such as galleries, theatres and other places that aren’t based on feeding one’s face.
Now that I am finding the value-add in the sharing of community knowledge via Fourquare I am sure I will become a keener, more avid user. Although I am wary of the stalker potential this has so perhaps I’ll”check out” instead and log my presence as I’m leaving…

PS: here is the pic I have added to my Foursquare profile just then but it looks kind of squashed on the profile …. this is the original!
