Foursquare check-ins decrease by 25% in US

9 Jun

Convience & Convert reports in “11 Shocking New Social Media Statistics in America” that 74% of Americans are unfamiliar with the concept of checking in to a location via mobile device, and only 3% have ever checked in.

This extra complexity brings many new features to the service, but some of its users are anything but happy about the changes.

With this update, Bitly is becoming more of a social bookmarking site than “just” a link shortener. Its users, however, were taken aback by these changes.
