CauseWorld/Location based Apps - follow up
So, about two weeks ago I wrote a post about the do-good application ‘CauseWorld’. I had all of the best intentions to download the application and get to work on earning my personal karmas to save the world - one check-in at a time.
Unfortunately, I found that I never remembered to check in when I was out somewhere. And over the holiday weekend I went to a number of places! It crossed my mind later when I arrived home; I promised myself that I would check in somewhere the next day.
For me at least, the act of checking myself in somewhere is not on my mind when I am out and about. I’m focused on what I’m doing and trying to accomplish and the extra step of checking in escapes my mind. I wonder how many other people are intrigued by Foursquare, Facebook Places, CauseWorld, etc. but fail to follow through as often as they would like. Is the process of checking in something that will eventually become second nature to every smart phone carrying being? How often do YOU check-in?
