In a day and age when social media is king, you have the ability to become Mayor of any restaurant in Buffalo. If you frequent it enough and 'check in' whenever you are there that is. When it comes to social media tools, Foursquare has become a favorite for people who like to go out to eat and drink. There is a large community of Foursquare rooters that thrives on letting others know exactly where they are at any given time, and who they are with. It's a sort of like being a member of a special 'smart app' club. If you are a Foursquare user and you have a favorite restaurant that you like to eat at, chances are that you know who the Mayor of that restaurant is. To some, that can be kinda creepy. To others it's just a social media guru's way of life. For me? I'm on Foursquare, but when I'm in an establishment it never occurs to me to 'check in'.
If you are one of the enthusiasts that I mentioned above, you should know that National Foursquare Day 2012 is upon us. What does that mean? It means that anyone who is keen on Foursquare is cordially invited by Social Media Club Buffalo (SMCB) to attend a 4S party at Rohall's Corner, 540 Amherst Street in Buffalo, on Monday April 16, starting at 6pm. "Foursquare is immensely popular in Western New York, particularly among food and drink enthusiasts," said Nicole Schuman, president of SMCBuffalo. "It's another great way for businesses to get their name out there without spending money on advertising." The party is free, and the R&R BBQ truck will be on-hand to provide some good eats. Guests will also be entertained with all sorts of social media exercises, including a "speed dating" version of beSOCIAL, its monthly roundtable chat.
SMC Buffalo will join hundreds of cities across the globe to connect with their local and international neighbors. For more information on the event please visit:
