Giving data nerds access to the realtime pulse of check-ins around the world | Foursquare Blog

Giving data nerds access to the realtime pulse of check-ins around the world | Foursquare Blog | New Media Technology | Scoop.it

Pretty much from the day we founded Foursquare, we’ve had a lot of requests from people who want to use our data for research. That’s because the general trends we can identify – like that New Yorkers are 2.1% more likely to get ice cream for every degree above 60 degrees fahrenheit, or that the busiest time to shop on Black Friday is 2pm – are really interesting, and they are something you can only figure out if you have Foursquare’s data.

Hangyu Lee's insight:

Foursquare allows people to access data. And they said market research companies can use it to get a realtime pulse on holiday shopping trends, and social media marketing agencies can instantly track the impact of a national chain’s Super Bowl campaign. It can be a chance to someone. Who gets an opportunity for growing up their business?

Foursquare launches tool to visualize your check-ins | About Foursquare | New Media Technology | Scoop.it

Just in time for 4sqDay, Foursquare has launched a new “Your Year in Check-ins” tool for users to visualize their check-ins. Foursquare’s new tools is a neat way to visualize your check-ins and better understand the relationships between them. This is exactly the kind of thing Foursquare is doing in their Explore algorithms to determine places to recommend — except those are over the full range of Foursquare users — but in a unique visual way that makes it easier to understand. What do you think of the tool?

Hangyu Lee's insight:

In Foursquare day, Foursquare had launched a new check-in tool for users to visualize their check-ins. It shows the massive amounts of data Foursquare has about where we go and how those places are connected.

Hangyu Lee's insight:

Korea and Japan have territorial dispute in Foursquare. A lot of Japanese try to upload anti-Korea pictures in Dokdo, and argue that Dokdo is their territory. Dokdo has been at the center of a territorial dispute between Korea and Japan, and of course it is Korean territory. The war goes to online now.

Foursquare's latest iOS update proves its future is in local search, not badges | New Media Technology | Scoop.it
You can sum up Foursquare's latest iOS app update in three words: location, location, location.
Hangyu Lee's insight:

I just updated foursquare to the latest version. Foursquare changes not only design but also local search system. The changes extended to the Foursquare activity feed, which is now populated not just by your friends’ activity but by trending locations. I agree with what author's said in this article. It's like a business plan.

The new, more amazing Foursquare is about the money -- not the mayorships

The new, more amazing Foursquare is about the money -- not the mayorships | New Media Technology | Scoop.it
Over the past year or so Foursquare has become the best local search app that you're probably not using. And that's all Foursquare's fault.

The LBS application companies don't know how to make money these days. Can Foursquare makes money in Korea?

Do you know Banjo(http://ban.jo)? I had a chance to talk with the founder of the service by Skype. And he said we don't know how Banjo works in Korea. Korean people think it is kind of Whoshere which is real social dating app in Korea.
