Facebook check-ins for free wifi

Some businesses have teamed up with Facebook and Cisco to help improve their business ventures by pulling up their Facebook page when users want to use wifi. Users will allow the check in at the venue, and it will post on their timeline that they’re there. This apparently has helped businesses that tested it out in San Francisco a considerable amount. Smart users can hide it from their timeline, or if they have good eyes, skip it al together and just get in on the free wifi. This is actually a great idea to me at least because you don’t have to worry about guest passwords and it helps the business without being annoying. I can see this keeping brick and mortar venues relevant for a while.
