Even though SU alum Dennis Crowley founded Foursquare and SU was found to be one of the most active schools on Twitter, Syracuse has now ranked among the ten least social cities in the United States. NetProspex, a sales and marketing company, calculated the social media presence of cities throughout the country. The Salt City claimed the title of No. 8 “least social cities,” while Anchorage, AK took the top spot.

Many students in the Syracuse area are on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, but NetProspex only included those who use a corporate email. It seems that many people were left out in the calculations. It’s worth noting that many of the cities on the least social list are in obscure places. Also, the majority of the most social cities are on the West Coast.
