Foursquare Now Tells you when you’ll become Mayor

Were you giving hope of becoming the Mayor of your favorite watering hole like me? Well no longer do you have to be in the dark about what mayorships you are close to getting on Foursquare. Added just a few days ago to the iPhone app is information about how many more checkins you’ll need to become the Mayor of a location after you checkin.

I love using Foursquare to share what I’m doing but usually wondered how long will it take for me to become the mayor. Many 3rd party app makers have taken advantage of this and made cool apps letting you know how close you are. Unfortunately for them they now are out of business. Of course when the company creates their own version, it’s usually superior then what the 3rd party developers create.

For all of you nuts about Foursquare I do want to remind you of the security risks involved. It does make it easy for criminals to know when you are home or not. This goes the same for Twitter. Try not to be so open with where you are at all times. Going on vacation can turn into a criminals dream. The perfect time to break into your place and steal all your goodies.
