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.
Here is the video i made by Windows Movie Maker. It’s short but interesting.
It tells everyone “Do not make the stupid mistake as i did”.
I post it on Youtube so everyone can easily view it. Hope people will like it.
