Fakesquare soup for the soul

If you like Foursquare, you’re going to love Fakesquare, the popular site’s evil twin.

Kudos to 90 Miles North’s Andrew Hickey for finding this.

Foursquare, for the uninitiated (also known as people with a life), is the popular Web tool that lets tools tell the world where they are. You earn points and badges so that you can tell everyone that you have points and badges. Seriously.

Gawker’s Brian Moylan put it best.

Foursquare honcho Dennis Crowley says that in the future, the mayor of a certain location might get a coupon or a discount. Sorry, but if you go to a bar or restaurant often enough for the staff and managers to recognize you, then you are a “regular” and that privilege is as old as public houses and one that often comes with freebies.

    I understand the potential marketing impact of FourSquare and the different ways you can use it. But short of "unfollowing" someone, you are forced to suffer through check-ins, mayoral claims and incessant badgering (zing!). For twitter users, there's no opting out. That's why FakeSquare is the best thing to ever happen to anything…anywhere.On a side note, I think someone should go to City Hall in Kingston, become FourSquare mayor and set up shop in Sottile's office.

    Well, Claudia D'Arcy just became mayor of City Hall, so there.http://twitter.com/FauxClaud/status/11903792216
