Monsters on Foursquare! Marketing Mutation!
I just got a Foursquare friend request from the “Subterrestrial Research Association”, which seems to have checked in at a lot of UK movie theaters to warn people about a “monsters outbreak” and “infected areas”.
This is the first such marketing scheme I’ve seen on Foursquare, and I think it’s kind of genius. But that may be because I have a weakness for irreverence and apocalypses (in the movies, at least). I may not like it so much anymore when every new movie is spamming me on Foursquare…
