So you’re the mayor on Foursquare huh? Now that may actually have some kind of real value as Foursquare has solidified the rules.
Location based social network Foursquare has quietly added a new feature that allows venue owners to revoke the mayorship of users they believe have won their titles illegitimately. Mayorship is a title bequeathed to the Foursquare user who checks in to a location the most times in a two month period. It’s generally a symbolic badge of honor, but sometimes comes with real-world discounts if a venue wishes.
Why does this matter? Because for the first time, there are rules. And where there are rules, there can be commerce, participation and meaningful investment.
