Foursquare Fatigue. Am I the only one who's gotten past the honeymoon period with Foursquare and is wondering what the point is anymore?
Lately I've found myself either not checking in at all or feeling kind of like a chump when I do bother to check in. There seems to be so much hype about Foursquare and geolocation apps in general, but I can't shake the feeling that most of the hype is coming from people who in some way stand to make a profit off Foursquare rather than users. So far my experience with Foursquare has been very lukewarm: first I had to manually input most of the places I checked in at since I live in the burbs where nobody else was using it.

Just when I was about to give up hope of ever becoming mayor of Mashable HQ on Foursquare, the location-sharing social network has launched a new feature that might help alleviate my checkin fatigue: “am I mayor yet?”
According to the new feature, which launched this afternoon, I’m just four days away from becoming mayor of our New York City office. I know that because the service now tells you within the mobile app after each checkin (and with Mashable's Brett Petersel on vacation, my dream might just come true). In a blog post, Foursquare reminds us how mayorships work, writing that “you need to have checked in more days than anyone else over the last two months (60 days), so only one check-in per day counts.”

Location-based social network Foursquare counted its 40 millionth checkin a "couple days ago," according to a tweet from one of its developers.
The number shows that Foursquare's growth rate is accelerating: Five weeks ago, the company announced that the total number of checkins had reached 22 million. In short: Foursquare appears to have doubled its checkin rate in just over a month. It's just over two weeks, meanwhile, since Foursquare hit the million user mark. What's more, recent acquisition rumors have driven Foursquare hype to new levels.
