How to Delete A Foursquare Account
Foursquare is a mobile application available for iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Windows phone and other operating systems. The idea is to log-in or check-in at locations to share experiences, meet with friends or just share social experiences. Some businesses offer check-in specials, so if you check-in on Foursquare you can earn rewards like a percentage off your bill or even a freebie once in a while. The more you use the Foursquare program, the more badges you unlock. You can become the King of Sushi or a check-in Rockstar. Deleting your Foursquare account is quite simple because there is no money involved. The program is completely free.
