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?
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?

KAKAO will make a PC messenger next month. How can Nateon (powered by SK Coms) survive from this mobile giant?
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.
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?
As we expect more from technology, do we expect less from each other?
We're getting used to a new way of being alone together. Constant connection is changing the way people think of themselves. It's shaping a new way of being. It's time to think about new media technology. Do we use technology of our dreams?

This semester I make a scoop. It accounts for keeping an eye on new media technology. I decide to focus on new media because I’m really interesting about this area. I’m not an innovator but I’m sill an early adopter. I’m a heavy apple user, and also keeps paying attention to any great startup companies which produce brand new technologies. Since 2008 I have used lots of new media services. I used Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, Vimeo, Twitter, Path, Foursquare. They are different types of technologies that represent myself to the virtual world. All of those services are really helpful for me, so I’m really happy to try brand new services like those. I should keep an eye on the new media technology.
I subscribed some Korean opinion leaders in the new media area to follow trends and issues. Also I followed some leaders on Twitter, I got a lot of new information from the Korean Foursquare group. I was a photographer for that group last year, so now I still have some connection with great people in there. I followed and subscribed them and got brand new data from them. Even left some comments and had a communication with them. What I learned from them, new media is totally world wide thing. We share same news and the same idea. If Foursquare signed with Yelp to promote new services, or if Yahoo bought Tumblr, at the same time even same hour they share same news and insights and ideas. It is quite impressive for me. New media Time is exactly the same all over the world.
I have some steps for Scoop. It and Google plus. For me I already have main homepage which is monologyu.com (powered by NHN Corp.) Also I have great communication tools like Facebook page and Twitter. Even I promote my content to Foursquare, Path, Tumblr, I think I have enough social network services. But Scoop. It and Google plus is quite different with those what I’m using. I made a great curating tool in Scoop. It page, I can gather interesting news, insights, and created them. Also Google plus is another great social network to promote myself. I’m still using Facebook more than Google plus. But it helped me a lot to connect with great people who doesn’t use Facebook.
I will keep an eye on the new media. Also I’ll use Google plus for great network and Scoop. It (or other good curating services) for gathering information and categorize them.

Long available on Android, Google Now is the company's app on steroids.
It is fun that most Android phones can't run Google Now, but the iPhone can. Google's next search app is now availiable for iPhone and it contains Google Now which is better than Siri.
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.
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.
