'Mayor' of Greenwich Crowned in Foursquare

Peter Tesei may be the first selectman in Greenwich, but in the world of Foursquare -- a popular location-based social networking application -- “Joanne M” is the mayor.

Foursquare allows its 8 million users around the world to let their friends know where they are at all times. People can "check in" at various locations using their smartphones and collect points, prize “badges” and coupons for local businesses. You're crowned "mayor" when you've been to a place more than anyone else. Unless a “mayor” continues to check in, someone else has the chance to steal the title.

The Greenwich mayor, “Joanne M.” is also listed as the mayor of Stamford, Coldwell Banker in Stamford, Merritt Parkway Exit 34, Sono Norwalk and Chase Bank at 19 Putnam Ave. in Greenwich.

On Saturday, the second annual Foursquare Day -- April 16 = 4/16, 16 is 4-squared -- meet-ups will occur in different locations. So far, no Foursquare Day meet up has been announced in Greenwich, but check out other events nearby.
