Is Foursquare the New Twitter?
The newest social media application is generating big buzz.

So you have a Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace account … but are you on Foursquare yet?
The new social networking site is set to become the Next Big Thing in 2010 and, according to media insiders, is just as addictive as checking your email or updating your Twitter status.
Originally launched as an iPhone app, Foursquare is part social-networking and part-virtual game. Participants earn profile badges by sharing their locations with their friends via their phone or the website. The person to “check-into” a location, say your favorite restaurant or after-work bar, the most times becomes the “mayor” of that venue until someone else steals the title away.
Foursquare is currently available as an app on the iPhone and Android, but sorry Blackberry users, they’re still working on a version for you. (CNN)
