Foursquare Foulplay.

Let me just say for the record that I hate Foursquare.

It’s probably because I just don’t get it.  What’s the point?  To me it seems like Friendster and a “You Are Here” mall kiosk had a retarded child.  And then people repeatedly abuse that child like a Scout Master.

Anyway.

Unfortunately my friend Kyle likey the Foursquare.  To his credit, he did quit it at one point.  But he’s back on it, like Whitney on the pipe.  Which turned out to be a good thing, as it kind of led to a rather disturbing revelation.

kyle: You’re on Foursquare.

cb: Yeah, I’m sure my building is…

kyle:  No, your place.  I just checked in at your place on Foursquare.

cb:  ….?

kyle:  Yeah.  I just checked in at “Mangina’s”

And then he showed me.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?!?  Sure enough, “Mangina’s” was listed on Foursquare… complete with my fucking condo Unit number.

Who in the fuck created a Foursquare check in for MY specific condo??  And when??  And WHY?!?

I mean, I know it wasn’t me.  I’ve never been on Foursquare.  And I don’t even know how to access Foursquare, let alone create a special check-in location.

The freakiest part is that they called it “Mangina’s”.  That would appear to indicate they know about my blog– and where I live.  Or it could mean they figured out which wi-fi router is mine in the building (because I may or may not have  named my wi-fi with “mangina”).

Either way, it’s kind of creepy.  Especially because I really haven’t had that many people visit my new place.  I sure hope I’m not getting a new stalker.

So– is there any way to remove this “Mangina” checkpoint from Foursquare, or should I just turn it into a hipster hotspot and find myself a hunky mayor?

    You can go on the Foursquare website and become the owner of the location, you can also edit it and take the unit number off. I dont have my exact address on my Foursquare location. Someone else will probably add you back on there so just go with the flow. It may get you laid.

    Huh? What’d you say? Whitney and Kyle are on the pipe and looking at Foursquare? Is that what you said?? Huh???

  3. Dustin says:

    Did you use any other kind of location bound service? Latitude? Facebook check in? 4square steals info from places like that too.

  4. Kevin says:

    I have no idea what any of those words mean.

    “…abuse that child like a Scout Master.” Wow did that ever make the memories flood back into my mind. I think I need to write a blog post or six about that.

  6. I say turn it into a hipster hot-spot and run with it. Oddly enough, scruff (and I think grindr too) also use info from 4square to do check-ins… 😉

    If you email pivacy@foursquare.com with a link to the page with your condo on it, and explain that it’s your home, they’ll remove it.

    The Rusty Trombone (my van) is also an Internets check-in location. Of course that’s because I asked all my friends with smart phones to check in there on Mardi Gras, so I guess that’s not really the same situation at all.

    Did you remove Mangina’s, CB? I can’t find it on 4sq. I didn’t get a chance to add it to my “To Do” list. 😦
