Foursquare Deals: Do You Take Advantage Of Them?

As we all know, the world of social media is growing at an extreme rate, Facebook now has more than 500 million users signed up with more than half of them performing daily activities. Foursquare is another that is emerging as one of the more popular ones especially in the U.S.

For those of you who are unaware of what Foursquare is and what it’s about, it’s a geo-location based source of social media. The idea of it is that you ‘check-in’ to different places and you get badges for doing so.
