Are you a fan of Twitter, Facebook and Yelp?

Then you will probably enjoy Foursquare’s unique platform of combining content sharing and location check-in.

Foursquare is a great location based social network game that allows users to check into locations, share what they are doing, leave tips and reviews about the location.

However, under the surface Foursquare is a fun and addicting game that lets you collect badges and become mayor of a specific location. Users earn badges by visiting locations at unique times and become mayor after checking into a location more times than previous users in a set amount of time. This helps bring the competitive fun nature out of Foursquare users.
