Foursquare and Vodafone sign partnership


Vodafone becomes a mayor in Foursquare

Popular social network Foursquare has announced a partnership with Vodafone UK. The location-based game, which lets users broadcast their whereabouts to friends, will be promoted on Vodafone’s MyWeb and Live! portals.

The deal will also allow Vodafone customers to request a link to the Foursquare WAP site by texting ‘FOURSQUARE’ to 97866.

Founded in 2009, Foursquare gives its members the opportunity to ‘check in’ to venues, such as bars, clubs and coffee shops, across the country. Players earn badges for repeatedly visiting the same location and ‘mayoral’ titles are awarded to those who frequent the same establishment more often than another user.

While the deal between the site and Vodafone doesn’t offer existing Foursquare players any exclusive content, industry commentators have speculated that the partnership will vastly increase the social site’s exposure and popularity.
