In the studio week, Jason proclaimed his title as Mayor of 103.5 Kiss FM, a title that he acquired from Foursquare, which is a location-based social networking website, which allows users to “check-in” at locations using their mobile device.
Checking in to your location allows the user to earn points and the chance to be labeled the mayor of a certain location if that user checks into their location at least once a day. The application can also be synced with your Facebook and Twitter accounts to give your friends a glimpse into where you are and maybe even a chance for them to steal your title.
But with Facebook having the option of posting statuses for your friends to see and Twitter already having the ability to add locations to tweets, isn’t that enough? Well, apparently not.
Foursquare does indeed bring some competition into the aspect of social networking, but let’s hope that’s all it brings and it looks like Jason will remain the Mayor of Kiss, should it have anything to do with Foursquare.
