Are only 494 people in London using Foursquare?
When I checked in at the Emirates on Saturday for Arsenal's 3-0 triumph, I was made mayor of the Emirates (although someone else has now taken the mayorship).
More interestingly, Fouraquare said three other people were checked in there.
So if 4 out of 60,103 were checking in, that means out of 7.42 million Londoners, a total of, er, 494 people are using it.
- The Arsenal crowd may not be representative of Foursquare users.
- It also includes lots of people who don't live in London (but they visit London, clearly).
- People may have had trouble accessing the mobile web to check in (as it's often erratic around the Emirates on match day due to the number of people using it).
- Then again, the incentive to become mayor of the Emirates may have made people more likely to check in.
