I believe in the ability of social media to connect people – through experiences, opinions and just plain simple joys. I have my favorites, and one of them is Foursquare. Basically you just “check in” wherever you are. With that check in you see tips about the place you are, especially in regards to food.
Sometimes I even use it as a GPS. You can search a place, and see how to get there, what to eat, where to sit. The best part is, when you go to a place more than others, you become Mayor of that place. You get a badge and a crown (online, of course). Today I became Mayor of the House of Representatives. Yay me. Like I said, simple joy.
