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?

Hangyu Lee's insight:

Most of LBS services like Foursquare closed their business in Korea. But 'SeeOn' release brand new services periodically and yesterday they launched a new service called 'Location based deal matching service'. This service lets users create a deal and market owners can make a competitive bid for that deal. Do you think this idea can survive in the Korean LBS market?

Hangyu Lee's insight:

There are few LBS applications in Korea. Of course the big one is Foursquare, and some other small businesses occupy the LBS application market. And today the second best LBS application, 'I'm-in' decide close their business. Do you think LBS can makes money in Korea? Even Foursquare doesn't do anything.

AppShopper is Back in the App Store with ‘AppShopper Social’

AppShopper is Back in the App Store with ‘AppShopper Social’ | New Media Technology | Scoop.it

After a prolonged absence, an official AppShopper app is back in the App Store! Our original AppShopper app was removed from the App Store due to a conflict with a new set of App Store rules introduced last year. Since that time we’ve been hard at work creating a new app to continue to provide useful functionality to our users and also remain in compliance with Apple’s rules.

Hangyu Lee's insight:

Appshopper which rejected by App store is back again with social plug-in. The new version of the app still contains the core Wish List functionality that they’ve always had, but also introduces a social discovery portion of the app. I'm looking forward to their future updates and improvements.

Foursquare's latest iOS update proves its future is in local search, not badges

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.
