4 thoughts on “Why Foursquare is not Social Media

  1. Interesting points but I’ll disagree with you on one. Foursquare is a social media channel. According to your position Foursquare may not be a social ‘networking’ channel, but it is most certainly social media.

    • Thanks for your input. True, I don’t think it’s a social networking channel, but I also don’t think it’s used as a social media channel in any other aspects. No one seems to use it to find out where there friends are, share photos, status updates etc. The point about the blog was that people are basically sticking with it because of the game element, and not really anything else
