This week's top Foursquare brands: no change but Bastard Jeans fails to find friends

Wednesday 29 December 2010 01:00

No changes in position from last week's chart for the top ten Foursquare brands, but seventh placed Bastard Jeans is failing to attract friends at the same rate as tenth-placed Gossip Girl.

While there was no change in this week's Foursquare brand charts, TV show Bravo, currently in second place is gathering slightly more friends (404 per day) than the current leader MTV (396 per day), which could indicate an upcoming change in rankings.

Bastard Jeans is the only brand on the top ten not attracting over 100 friends per day; on December 28 the brand gained only 34 new friends and as of 10:30 am GMT on December 29 the jeans brand has attracted a mere one new friend. In comparison, tenth place brand Gossip Girl attracted 247 friends on December 28 and 30 new friends over the same period on December 29.
