We recently talked about how some version of Foursquare is going to be huge. And how whichever GPS check-in tool Facebook ends up getting behind is probably going to be the next big thing simply because of how quickly Facebook’s matchless crowd can push things mainstream.
Well, the next big thing might just be here. And it’s called Hot Potato. Just like other GPS check-in services, Hot Potato lets people announce their physical location to the world. But, Hot Potato does more than that. Users can announce anything, including what they’re listening to or what they’re reading.
Now if Facebook figures out how to bring competition to these other events, they might have a big winner on their hands. And if this Facebook buy-out of Hot Potato does go through, my money is on Hot Potato quickly overtaking current market leader, Foursquare.
