Setting up a Foursquare special in the yearbook room

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

How familiar are you with the location-based mobile service Foursquare? You might not realize that you can use it with yearbook, but you can.

Walsworth yearbook reps Whitney Moore and Kat Phillips are both nuts about Foursquare and they wrote about using Foursquare in the yearbook room on their blog last week.

Check out their post. As they explain, you can create a location for the yearbook room and offer specials to students and use Foursquare to just generally create a buzz about the book.
