Social media, social sharing, blogs, tweets, status updates and check ins OH MY ! I just became the mayor of my couch with GetGlue. What is this glue business ? Put simply what are you doing, reading, watching, playing, listening to or thinking about ? Well there is a check in for it on GetGlue. Check in so many times and get badges, stickers (mailed to you after so many), rewards, discounts and occasionally free stuff.
Foursquare seems to have lost it’s luster since I’ve discovered GetGlue. Checking in to Wal-Mart 4 times a week is not nearly as entertaining as checking into the Walking Dead season finally and geeking out with fellow fans.
