Comments on: Why I Checked Out of #Foursquare http://designnotes.info/?p=2436 Testing & Sprinting Sat, 27 Jan 2018 04:55:00 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.9 By: codemyconcept http://designnotes.info/?p=2436&cpage=1#comment-100961 Wed, 25 Aug 2010 20:47:00 +0000 http://designnotes.info/?p=2436#comment-100961 I respect each and every single one of your reasons. To be honest I’m kind of paranoid about such services and I might sound like an old lady but I don’t really understand why would so many people would like to announce their whereabouts to the world.

I like being a “ninja” sort of speak.

I’ve mentioned this example in a different post I think. When a bunch of people went to SXSW last year, I never saw any of them come up. They basically disappeared. People come to NYC all the time so once I see them on the radar it kind of makes sense.

And I do see better value in Facebook’s “Places” in regard to meeting with friends I wouldn’t mind running into.

What I never understood about Foursquare was the need to connect with people from outside of NYC, or strangers. It just seemed both weird and a waste of time.

Hoping “Places” turns out to be a better Foursquare.
