    Default FourSquare..Gowalla...Yelp...Souvaniers

    It seems that now with addition of Souvaniers that Groundspeak is trying to tie into social networking? There isn't enough info out there yet in regards to what exactly these souvaniers actually are. Im assuming that just like Foursquare, Gowalla, Waze, Yelp, etc, that these will just be virtual status symbols added to your profile. The About Souvaniers page doesnt give much info either. I'm assuming that there is very little actually ready to go on this as it states that you're already found caches will generate a souvanier if you've located a cache in a designated area. I know I only have 640 finds but they are scattered all over the state so perhaps Maine doesnt have any designated areas yet? Also, they reference searching for the zones on phones. Im assuming that only the Groundspeak paid app will display these zones. Any one have more information in regards to this new addition?

    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    I already have 101010 souvenir.
    The idea about getting any souvenir just by searching using their paid app is just ridiculous. What will be next, buying finds? 100 finds just for $20 and package of 1000 finds of your choice just for $100
