The #FollowFriday Series highlights today’s up-and-coming, active and all-around noteworthy Twitter accounts the AudioAcrobat staff deems worthy of following; while at the same time peering deeper into the soul(-cial media) of each account and providing a brief-yet-informative analysis.
After making hundreds of #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter throughout the first eleven weeks of 2011, our staff is showing no sign of slowing down when it comes to the integration of AudioAcrobat’s weekly #FF tweets into this nifty WordPress.com weblog.
Last week’s feature focused on a leading online travel company – Orbitz – and was so well received by our readers that we’d be crazy not to continue this weekly “trend” of blog-supported, fun and factual tweets.
Now, to ‘check in’ with a location-based social network that’s 6.5 million users strong – and growing!
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @foursquare, but will also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the fifty five Twitter accounts @foursquare is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) of the location-based mobile platform that makes cities easier to use and more interesting to explore.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “the location-based mobile platform that makes cities easier to use and more interesting to explore” in the same sentence.

More about foursquare:
Foursquare is a location-based mobile platform that makes cities easier to use and more interesting to explore. By “checking in” via a smartphone app or SMS, users share their location with friends while collecting points and virtual badges. Foursquare guides real-world experiences by allowing users to bookmark information about venues that they want to visit and surfacing relevant suggestions about nearby venues. Merchants and brands leverage the foursquare platform by utilizing a wide set of tools to obtain, engage, and retain customers and audiences.
