    I noticed myself doing something today while walking from one class to another. I was looking around, finding large groups, and walking close to them, just to see if later, I get any tags from StreetPass. Anyone else do this each day?

    I dont, but whenever i get a tag, i look around to see if the person is a hot chick or whatever. i don't go walking across crowds just to get tags, i have better things to do like look at hot chicks.

    Haha, yes, actually! I found myself walking towards groups of big people to try and pick up more StreetPass tags.. silly, I know.

    Generally every half an hour or so if I know i've walked past a tonne of people i'll check. It's been horribly disappointing so far. Can't believe a lot of the big shops in Sydney CBD sold out of 3DSs but i've found one guy in over 2 weeks.

    I do, but that's probably cause I haven't gotten 1 tag yet... [​IMG]

    I guess StreetPass will get a lot more popular in time, but right now it's probably next to useless.

    I do for extra steps sometimes, but no. There's no way I'm ever going to find anyone on Streetpass ever again...

    I found one person in NYC after being there for hours... the streets were flooded with people. I'm in shock that I only got one tag.

    Hm. I can't say that I do...but my college has a crazy load of kids anyway, so it's not as if I can avoid walking by large groups.

    Yup, my building at college is pretty small so I just do a round of the top which is about 2 minutes as there is 3 people who use streetpass there. The only other place is the bus stop.

    Nope, I just walk to and from class and just generally wander around like I did before I got the 3ds. I've gotten ~7k steps every day just with my normal walking and I don't really care about streetpass much...

    Yeah, I walk towards larger groups of people in hopes of getting some tags. [​IMG]
    All my tags so far have been on the train, or at Central Station.
