Presenting Research at National Conference

University of South Carolina

University of South Carolina

I have officially been accepted to present my research this fall at the Convergence and Society Conference at the University of South Carolina!

I will be presenting the results of my survey on using location-based services like Foursquare, Google Latitude, and Facebook Places on smartphones.

I received more than 400 survey responses from all around the world–thank you to all who participated!

“Checking out Checking In:” Launching My Survey

This week marks the culmination of months of hard work–the launch of my research survey!

I have spent the past five months researching how and why people use location-based services on their smartphones–apps like Foursquare, Facebook Places, and Yelp. Some people use these apps to check in to places, earn badges, and see where their friends are. What do you use them for?

Please take my survey and spread the word to your friends! I need hundreds of responses and every bit helps!
