Check in, Rock out with Foursquare and MySpace on HootSuite

Just in time for SXSW, social butterflies can share favorite hot-spots with friends on Foursquare, plus bands and filmmakers can quickly connect with fans on MySpace - all from HootSuite's Social Media Dashboard.

Don't know about Foursquare? This web juggernaut combines way-finding, social marketing and gaming in an addictive mobile app which encourages everyday socialites to "check in" at cafes, pubs, and conferences. They can alert friends, share tips, and even become "mayor" of a location. Note: CEO Ryan loves it.

Of course, you know MySpace. The venerable web giant is the place where creative types hang out and share their work and is the first stop for discovering emerging and established bands and filmmakers. With HootSuite, artists can easily outreach to fans about shows, releases and screenings. P.S. Let's be MySpace friends.
