Australian sports on brightkite

Posted by Laura on Tuesday, 4 May, 2010

About two years ago, I briefly used  I liked it because I could check in on my cell phone and find people to ask for travel advice on.  I stopped my minimal usage of it about six months ago and haven’t been back since.  To a large degree, brightkite is a precursor to foursquare so I felt it worth looking at to see if there was an Australian sports community located on it.

The first thing I did was update my location to where I actually am: Canberra, Australia.   I then searched for the major sports stadiums in Canberra.  I couldn’t find them.  I changed my location to the Melbourne and then searched for the Melbourne Cricket Ground.  Nothing turned up.  As this is one of the largest and most well known sports facilities in Australia, and as it is the most popular venue on foursquare, it not appearing on brightkite leads me to believe that there hasn’t been wide scale adoption of the service by Australians and it isn’t worth my time to explore the service to try to find other facilities.
