Parenting is moving into the world of social media with the launch of a helpful new service from Foursquare called #mom. The service provides a simple and fun way for people to let their mom know where they are. After signing up at hashtagmom.com, you can add #mom to your Foursquare check-in along with a short accompanying message and choose whether to send her an automated call or text.
