These options and applications have been bugging me for months, but maybe it's just because I don't understand the point. I just don't understand why anyone would want everyone to know where you are all the time.
My brother started using Foursquare several months back and it about drove me insane. It seemed like every time he walked down the hall his Twitter was updated with a new location. I think I finally threatened him and he disabled it.
But really, do you seriously want people to know you're at the bank? Or that you're at the mall in the middle of the work day? Or at Starbucks at 8:12, when you're supposed to be at work at 8?
Oh, and let's not forget the whole political aspect of these apps. Does anyone really care if you're the mayor of some location? I mean, doesn't that just mean you really should find something better to do than frequent a restaurant so much that you're now the mayor?! And you've "ousted" someone else from their mayoral seat??
Well, I guess if you get free drinks as the mayor, then there's something to be said for becoming a politician via your cell phone.
I'm so confused!! Someone, please explain this to me. Am I missing out on something fabulous, or has the whole world just gone social media crazy??
