Location Based Social Media Tools

I think many New York State agencies can benefit from using location based social media tools. For example, SCVNGR ( is like Foursquare in the fact that users check in to locations and can see their friends. However, it differs in that people can earn points by finishing challenges and completing treks (where people visit multiple locations). Also, unlike Foursquare, SCVNGR is looking to help out early adopters create their own treks. Just think OPRHP could create a trek for visiting the parks or monuments. The reward could be a coupon for free park admission. What do you think about this?


Let me know what you think.
