I have friends all over - and one of the things I'm finding very interesting is how many people ARE Geo-tagging everything... and how many people just AREN'T.
I mean - seriously... have you seen someone in NC posting that they are "checking in" at a listing? Well folks in Colorado are!
One friend recently said, " and have you seen where (so and so) has been lately? They must be gaining 50 pounds! I mean it's Biscutville, Bojangles, Krispy Kreme... OMG!"
So is it because it's a GAME, and you get BADGES? Or is there some Social "nod" associated with notifying folks that you frequent the Library, or your office, or Joe's Coffee shop.
I'm just not sure I get it.... I mean I totally get letting people know about "secret places" (Like the Flower Lady who lives in our town, and if you see a little tiny sign with flowers hanging out them she's selling flowers around back for $4 that would cost you $12 at a Florist!)... but is there VALUE in letting people know that you frequent Bisketville and Krispy Kreme??
I understand that there's some monitary inducements for resturants... so like if you're the Mayor of the local pub they might give you a free beer - but I don't think places here have caught on?
So is it a matter of educating business here to give out discounts??? I'm just not into Social Spamming... Is it really the next Twitter???
