Checking-in Versus Checking-out: using location-based social networking

Danielle Kane, Research Librarian for Emerging Technologies and Service Innovation @ UC Irvine
March 25, 2013 @ 12:30 PM
Services like Foursquare are location-based social networking websites for mobile devices. Users “check in” at venues and offer tips or reviews about the location.  Check-ins can award user points, sometimes “badges”, and even “Mayorships” for a location.  This session will cover how to claim/create sites in Foursquare and Yelp, how to manage the site, statistics provided and some ideas for how to use these services with your library patrons.
