Social media isn?t just for the tech world anymore; in fact if there?s one industry that has embraced the vast world of Twitter, Foursquare and Facebook ? fashion wins. Womens Wear Daily keeps its Twitter followers up to date on the event details of the evening, while rouge accounts like @NoBtotheS calls out certain eccentricities and personalities in the style crew that everyone wants to evoke, but can?t.
Now the world has a chance to reap additional shopping benefits from their social media habits and Foursquare check- ins. Certain locations reward their mayors with certain discounts or freebies, but let?s be honest: becoming the mayor of a store in a big city like New York, Paris, LA, or London is nearly impossible.
So forgo the serious stalkage involved with earning the virtual crown and focus on the ever-growing list of badges that Foursquare?s creating. For the sartorial inspired individuals, direct the aim towards earning a select few of the fashion approved circles of social media goodness. Though Marc Jacobs? Fashion Victim badge has already hit retirement, the brains behind Foursquare are regularly updating their offerings. Snag Lucky Magazine?s Elite shopper by checking into five of their favorite boutiques, Bravo?s Fashionista and Real Housewife with a few visits to the well-heeled socialites must-visit spots, or People?s Hot Spot with check-ins at celebrity shopping haunts.
Sure, they?re virtual badges, but who doesn?t love a nice little accessory to decorate their social media presence?
