Are you a Foursquare user? If not, chances are really good that in the near future you will be! A blog posting on LaughingSquid got my attention today as the author reveals details of a recent meetup at the foursquare office and reports on 50 newly support cities and even a new, secret product roadmap! A sampling of newly supported cities includes:
New Haven, CT
Oklahoma City, OK
Park City, UT
Ottawa, Canada and many more!!
Foursquare is a fun, geo-social service where users can check-in to their favorite places (or any place for that matter), leave a note, provide a tip, or just shout out about something. When you check-in (typically via mobile app on iPhone or Android device) you have a chance to collect points, badges, heck, you can even become “mayor” of that place! For business owners there’s a great opportunity here to get listed in what is rapidly becoming a very popular local search tool so even if you aren’t an avid foursquare user yet, you should consider atl east adding your business to the POI database – you can do this via mobile or simply via the PC UI – see www.foursquare.com
