I had earned 717 points on my foursquare account. There are many things I did to earn the high points:
1. I only added Prof. Johnson as my friend so I will earn more points by visiting some place which I think Prof. Johnson probably did not visited or check-in in his account. It would offer extra 2 points for the trip if he had never check-in the place.
2. I tried to find some popular stores or building showed in the list of nearby, which would offer extra 4 points for the trip.
3. I tried to go to as many different places as I can. It would offer extra 3 points for the trip.
4. I tried to become the Mayor for the place I visited, which would offer extra 2 points for the trip.
5. I tried to avoid to check-in the same place I visited before. I could earn only 1 point for the second trip to the same place if I am not the Mayor.
6. I think the total check-ins which earn points are about 30-35 times within 24 hours. Any checkins more than that or within short period will be resulted in 0 points
I download Foursquare software to my Iphone 4 on April 22. Then, i created my account which linked to my facebook account. Then i added Prof. Johnson as the only friend in my Foursquare account. Finally, i could start to earn points by check-ins.
Foursquare is a software which allows people to check in the address they are currently located. Therefore, people could easily record the places they visited and share the information with their friends. In order to have more fun, the software offers different points for people’s check-ins in different locations.
I created my Foursquare account on last friday. It is very interesting software which could record and share the place people visited in past. Also, it is fun to earn as many points as i can by lots of check-ins. Below is the screenshot of my total points in Foursquare which i hope it’s the highest score in my class.
The social media innovation course is a very interesting class. I learned how to create my own blog in the first couple weeks. It was a challenge job to promote the blog. Also, it was not easy to promote the Facebook page for my group project, either. However, i really had a lot of fun to design and promote my blog and Facebook page. As a MIS minor, i got more idea about the MIS environment in today’s soecity after taking this course. Therefore, i highly recommend my friends to take this class next semester.

I have participated in viral marketing of Apple iphone. My friends told me it was very cool to use Apple iphone. Iphone has a big screen and contains many more functions than other cell phones. In addition, the price of new iphone is fixed and used iphone’s value decreases slowly. Therefore, I bought Apple iphone 4 last year. I use it to go online very night when I am on the bed. I really like it so I highly recommend my other friends to buy it. Now, a few of my friends bought iphone and all of my families use Apple iphone.
I think viral marketing is more likely to be successful for products with network effects. People always trust your friends or families than the people in the Ads. With the network, it is easier for people to learn more information about the products or service. Also, people who used the products and services like to share their experiences to other people. Based on the network effects, as long as the goodwill of products and services are in good shape, it definitely helps companies to be more successful.

Social media becomes new and different by the technology. Before, most people share information by newspaper, maginzes and TV. Since there are many new technology appears all the time. People start to use their smart phones and computers to know what happened in the world. People could not leave social media because social media provides the information people want and need. As long as people use the new technology, the soical media could allow people to get the information easily and faster. Social media decrese the distances between countries and human.
