We have been looking around for any new advancements in social networking and we may have found it. It is called Foursquare and it integrates your daily routine and locations you visit with social networking and rewards. You tie your account with your phone and notify the network when you are in a specific location. (You are able to hide you location if you chose to.) The more you visit locations or write notes about the locations the more you are able to be awarded with badges and potentially coupons. This creates a bit of a game out of your daily habits while interacting and creating a dialogue with those in the network with you. The network also integrates with FaceBook to show friends where you are and what you are doing. Right now the program is only available for the iPhone but it will soon be branching to the Blackberry. Perhaps this is the first true step in mobile networking.
We'll keep you posted but for now, try and think of ways to integrate this with recruitment.
