thing 4: Maps and Checking In by Stephanie McGlinchey (@stephmcg)
It has been an interesting week checking out and checking into Foursquare, Facebook and Geocaching- and by interesting I mean that rather there have been quite a few questions raised in blogs and reflections about the value of foursquare, both personally and for the organisation.
The #anz23mthings hashtag has been abuzz with with #blogjune and tips and advice on other subjects as well, which has made for a full week of tweets and conversations to look at!
It’s been fun seeing people checking in and gaining mayorships of venues

@sallysetsforth Just popped out to return some library books & pick up some takeaway – and scored two new FourSquare mayorships! 🙂 #anz23mthings
And other people using other checking in tools

Cath (@KiwiLibrarian) speaks of the implications of an organisation becoming involved in foursquare
I have really enjoyed how people are critiquing apps and consciously deciding whether or not it is appropriate for them. Con raised the issue yesterday of being unplugged (as part of #blogjune), which has made me wonder can you be too plugged in?
