The Abyss Squared, Foursquared that is….


We are actually getting with the program and if you have been visiting lately you may have actually figured this out already.  Dave has a new social media app that he likes….and participates in frequently.  He is actually now using his Iphone for what it is meant to be used for.  His new obsession other than diving….is FOURSQUARE!  and he is really really good at it.  Foursquare is a fun social media travel app and we are right in there having fun with our badges, mayorships, adventures and competitions.  July 1st we will be launching our Foursquare specials so if you have not joined, join it!  This is what it is and how it works:

Foursquare is a social media app that people use to check in , share experiences, provide their tips for places they have visited, gain badges and get to be the mayor of the locations that they visit frequently.  People use foursquare to “check-in”, which is a way of telling us your whereabouts. When you check-in someplace, we’ll can tell your friends where they can find you and recommend places to go & things to do nearby. People check-in at all kind of places – cafes, bars, restaurants, parks, homes, offices.  You can decide to share this information with everyone, just your friends or just the places you frequent.  You decide your privacy settings, Foursquare does not!

The badges and Mayorships are the most fun.  Dave has to compete regularly for the mayorship of the dive center, so he is now forced to come to work throughout the day so he can ‘check in’ more than his divers.  To add a super fun bonus, we have added the reefs that we dive so that you can also double this as a log book, and let your friends know where you went diving today. 

In July we will use Foursquare as a reward program for our customers based on the number of check ins that you have done.  This will equal the number of dives you have done while you are here.  The reward is a secret and we will let you know what that is cmoe july 1 but if you are around and participating on foursquare and only check in when you are diving, no specials for those who check in when they are not diving or visiting the Dirty Martini for beers and happen to ‘check in’ at the dive center, you will be eligible for our foursquare rewards.  Note: It is only check ins at the Abyss Dive Center, not the new location someone put up which is titled THE Abyss Dive Center.  The official check in is the Abyss Dive Center and all the reefs that we have plotted in the ocean…

This is a fun thing to do and look for our specials starting July 1.  The mayor will always win the most but frequent visitors will gain…we just may have to make up our own badges for our divers…woo hooo how much fun is that….

YOu will need a smart phone and you will need an account with foursquare to play.  Check in when you are in playa and let the games begin!

You’ll find that as your friends use foursquare to check-in, you’ll start learning more about the places they frequent. Not only is it a great way to meet up with nearby friends, but you’ll also start to learn about their favorite spots and the new places they discover.
