Inevitably, anyone who moves to San Francisco becomes a social media expert. When I first moved to the city, I was a proud owner of a non-smart flip phone and foursquare still meant a game at recess. However, in less than two years I became an active contributor to all things media; apps such as Groupon and LivingSocial were the first I downloaded.
$15 for pub fare at a bar I had never heard of…Sure! I thought. I’m new and the Tenderloin sounds like a trendy place. $25 for three pedicures…Great deal! But where in the heck is Sunnyside?
My wallet has been fooled by so many coupons I have lost count. So, however good $450 sounds for a six-hour Napa excursion for me and nine of my closest friends, I began to ignore social media “deals.” That is, until I discovered Scoutmob.
