Foursquare Mayor of the Year

Location based services such as Foursquare allow the most loyal frequenter of the venue to be recognised as the “mayor”. Some mayors simply gloat, but the best help their fellow citizens explore a city.

“When the burdens of the presidency seem unusually heavy, I always remind myself it could be worse. I could be a mayor," President Lyndon B. Johnson once said. Location-based services such as Foursquare allow the most loyal frequenter of the venue to be recognised as the "mayor." Some mayors simply gloat, but the best help their fellow citizens explore a new place.

The Shorty Award for Foursquare Mayor is given to a person who has used location-based social media to creatively make a venue a more welcoming and more social environment. Nominees are judged on their cleverness and impact.
