What is Foursquare?
Foursquare is a location-based social networking website that allows users to "check-in" at venues using a mobile website, text messaging or a device-specific application via their smart phone by running the application and selecting from a list of venues that the application locates nearby. Users can choose to have their check-ins posted on their accounts on Twitter, Facebook, or both.
While this program may have positive aspects like, finding recommendations or information about landmarks, restaurants, schools and more , the use of these applications poses risks to the user. NetSmartz411 encourages anyone using these programs to utilize privacy controls to ensure only people you know in real life see your check-ins.
