Tampa, FL  -- He was just crowned mayor himself, but Bob Buckhorn is already passing the title along. Well, sort of.

Buckhorn signed a proclamation naming businessman Jason Cyr the Foursquare mayor of Tampa.

Foursquare is a social networking tool that lets your friends know exactly where you are. If you check-in online to a place more than anyone else, you become the "mayor."

That's what happened to Jason Cyr. He won today's competition by staying the mayor of Sail Pavilion at the Riverwalk at exactly 2:04 this afternoon.

Foursquare began in Tampa last year as a way to celebrate small businesses and communities.
