“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!
