Real-Time Conference Tips on Foursquare

IL on Foursquare

Even if you have not embraced location based social media tools like  Foursquare and Gowalla you can still benefit from those who have.  Check out Internet Librarian on Foursquare for tips and suggestions from your fellow attendees.

You do not need a location enabled device or a Foursquare account to read tips like:

  • Sarah H: Get inspired by talking to one person you don’t know every day you’re here.
  • Polly F: Attend a session on a something that doesn’t seem quite related to your work and see what new connections you might make.
  • Rachel V: Get to the keynote presentations early so you can snag a spot at a table and get power for your laptop.

If you are a Foursquare member, please add any tips and suggestions of your own to the list at Foursquare.
