This post was written for and appeared originally on the R2integrated blog. Major brands are investing serious time and serious dollars into geolocation. Whether that be Bravo or MTV on Foursquare or McDonald’s on Facebook Deals (an extension of Facebook Places). Geolocation has been on the tip of tongues since Foursquare launched at SXSW 2009. […]

Due to a conference call I unfortunately came into this session a little late, but here’s what I’m walking away with. Associations On the Go with Peter Hutchins & Amy Hissrich of ASAE The trend is moving that people want easy to carry devices where they can access large amounts of data. So what does […]

In case you haven’t heard… Microsoft is pulling the plug on the Kin. You can add your words of condolence here. So what does this teach us? Well… 1. Us Gen Y’ers care about what our friends are doing, but not enough that we want to lose the perceived functionality of the phone. Lesson for […]

I realized something while I was at Great Ideas 2010… I’m obsessed with geolocation apps. Especially Foursquare. So it’s time for a smackdown. I have an Android phone so over the next couple of weeks I’m going to be testing out Gowalla & Loopt, then comparing them to Foursquare to see who is my king […]

So recently quite a few posts have come up about foursquare, and they got me thinking about being a responsible member of a social network. I love foursquare, I’ve said so. My problem is I’ve been thinking of ways that my association can use Foursquare at our conference and ways in which it will really […]

As the title states, I have a new obsession… Foursquare. To the end user it’s a mobile application that allows them to “check-in” at a location and discover new places around town, with helpful suggestions from other users. It works on the iPhone & Android, supposedly you can play by text (haven’t tried it) and […]

So I think the next big trend (that is already starting) is that iPhone apps from associations are on the way. I already know there are quite a few, including ASAE, and even my association is working up something to compliment our annual conference. My question is do I want my association on my phone? […]
