Foursquare gets a new look in latest update


Hey all, just as a caution thing, I know you are all intelligent enough to realize this, but use wisdom when using an app like this. Letting everyone know you are out of town can be like standing on the rooftops and shouting "Hi, rob my house!". So be wise with Facebook, Twitter and other social networks because sometimes you don't know who is following you. Cool. Glad to see the update, the check in button will be nice.

Know exactly what you mean. Sadly this happened to a buddy of mine. He left on vacation with his family (announced via Facebook) and the day after they left their house was robbed. Robbers stole nearly all the electronics (game consoles, laptops, tvs, etc). Social networking is indeed nice but yeah, we have to be very careful when using it.

For someone to see your checkins, they have to be your friend or know where you live. I dont use twitter and and everyone on my FB and FSQ friend list I know. Only my closest friends know where I live.

I stopped checking in with any social app long ago. The only thing FourSquare is good for is free Chips and Salsa at Chilis.

It's nice getting these update notices.....but it would also be nice if there was a quick note saying what this software is and does.

I had never heard of Foursquare, didn't know what it was and wasted 60 seconds of my valuable time checking it out. Only to find out it's something I have no interest in. :-[

These guys usually do a great job of linking to a previous post (if there is one) so that you can read up on the subject. Maybe there is not one in this case or maybe they forgot. Either way, 60 seconds of "wasted" time doesn't seem that bad.
