I was at a Marketing conference in NYC this past week and someone had set up a check in point as someone’s ass. Ok, this was kind of funny because the place that you would check into the person’s ass was also the lunch and dining area of the show. It was kind of funny and you could make a million jokes but it also got me thinking of a really sweet way to use social media to propose to someone you love.
Everyone has seen the Old Spice guy’s proposal and proposals over Twitter. We have seen break ups and people getting engaged via facebook but I haven’t heard or seen much with weddings and engagements with 4 square.
Foursquare is a social media site that lets you log into locations and let everyone know where you are at. If the location is unclaimed you can create a new one and as people go there they can find it and check in. The more you check in the more badges you get. You can become the mayor and the owner or the leader of locations as well and that got me thinking. If you can open a location as someone’s ass why not open a location as someone’s heart? So here’s my thought on proposing to someone using four square.
Go to a restaurant or wherever you want to propose and set the location up as the person you are about to propose to’s heart. Then when you are done eating dinner or when you are ready to ask that person to marry you, if they say yes you can check into their heart and if they say no you can check into their ass, j/k you can set up a different location. Checking into someone’s heart or someone’s soul isn’t only sweet but it is romantic and will allow everyone who is following you or friends with you on four square to find out what your future fiance said. It also allows them to contact you guys almost immediately and makes it so you don’t have to make a million phone calls to everyone to let them know. The best part about checking into that person’s heart is that they will realize how romantic and creative you are and it will always make for a romantic and wonderful story that they can share with everyone and brag about.
I love the idea of using 4 square to check into someone’s heart as a way to get engaged and share it with all of your friends and family.
