Happy Foursquare Day! It's 4.16.16 and my first check-in was 5 years ago so Happy 5th Anniversary Foursquare! :)
I went to an interview for an IT company few years back and they asked me which social media I use on a daily basis, my answer was Facebook, Foursquare, and Google+. They asked, you don't use Twitter? I have a Twitter account but I rarely use it. The manager told me, "you're weird" because I use Foursquare but not Twitter.
In this blogpost, I will list down 4 reasons why I love and use Foursquare and Swarm.

During my trip to Baguio last March 2, 2013, Jomar and I (as recommended by friends) decided to try the Joy Bus of Genesis. We went to the bus terminal the day before just to make sure we have a ticket going to Baguio and asked for the cell phone number of the person to contact in Baguio so we could reserve our returning ticket. Reservation Number in Baguio 0906-591-6011. She doesn't reply though.
