Interesting social media use at #vala2012: no one is using Foursquare. 3 people checked in out of hundreds of attendees. Just not Oz thing?

it doesn't seem to be a huge thing, and oddly not much amongst librarians from what i've noticed #vala2012

There's not a lot of incentive here. Very few businesses give rewards for being mayor of anywhere. #vala2012

I see 5 checked in, were 7 earlier. But no, not big uptake here. Rolled out here later, also less concentrated pop'ns? #vala2012

mostly I feel 'what's the point 'with foursquare. Points and scores that don't translate to much. If they were steam achievements..

not an Oz thing. People tend to get unfriended if they foursquare via twitter too much

don't know many using reg. Apparently usage still increasing but not much compared with #fb #linkedin #twitter http://t.co/ec41riJ3

that is interesting and perhaps reflective of a low uptake in the sector? It certainly has been trumpeted before.

Aussies are biggest Facebook users in the world. Maybe using Facebook checkins instead of foursquare? #vala2012

I think foursquare is used quite widely, but not picked up by librarians...we r looking at putting up page, lots of use on campus

I love four square but not many people I know use it. More people use places on Facebook

maybe, I don't want to advertise where I am - either it'll reveal how dull my life is or I'll be compelled to talk to people I know
