It´s about trendsetters. Not followers. #mercedesbenz #fail

I saw this one on an outdoor poster today. What do all you followers say to this piece of writing? I think it´s very yuppie and outdated. Communication that aren´t synced with reality.

Tips to make @foursquare more useful?

I´ve been on a break for some time now. Vacation has been occupying most of my time. I feel it´s time to shout out something I´ve been thinking about lately. In general I love @foursquare. One of the things that I like most is the fact that I can track my journeys: Where I went and what I ate, mostly. I moved to Stockholm 4 months ago and I´m still a newbie in this city, so this is my public notebook. I don´t exploit Foursquare to it´s full simply because I don´t know how to. The purpose of Foursquare is to help you explore a new city, to meet up with your friends, discover new places and new things. A short sum up on my Foursquare life. I haven´t explored new places, I haven´t done new things and I haven´t met new people based on Foursquare. Most of my friends are people I have met in real - or in my digital life, the majority through my Twitter account and not through Foursquare. I discover places through recommendations, either friend´s or media, and places I randomly stop by. Not through Foursquare. I have never been eating a dish based on a recommendation on Foursquare.
It doesn´t stop me from using Foursquare. I´m a geek and I like to play with it. I`m feeling proud when I receive a mayorship. However, from my point Foursquare is far from a success when looking into how I use it compared to the purpose of it.
Am I missing the point? Do you have any good suggestions for making Foursquare more useful?
