"privatesquare is a simple web application to record and manage a private database of foursquare check-ins. It uses the foursquare API as a single-sign-on provider, for user accounts, and to query for nearby locations (using your web browser's built-in geolocation support). Check-ins can be sent on to foursquare (and again re-broadcast to Twitter, etc. or to your followers or just "off the grid") but the important part is: They don't have to be." #open_source #self-hosted #php #privacy #foursquare #location_based_services #quantified_self #tracking #pub

"BRING YOUR TIPS, REVIEWS & CHECK-INS TO LIFE. Video posts for Foursquare." "Vigeo just went live for iOS and the idea is pretty simple. Micro-video tips, reviews & check-ins for Foursquare. Sometimes, what you are doing is just way too awesome to be shared with a still image and 140 characters. Sometimes, it would be nice to actually see the steaming plate of lobster mac and cheese you're thinking of ordering, and actually hear someone talk about how good it is. And sometimes, when you're deciding on a new place to go, it would be nice to actually experience the atmosphere before you actually decide to go there. See, simple! Bring your tips, reviews and check-ins to life." #iOS #foursquare #APIs #geo #apps #pub

Foursquare's spin off of checking in, gamification, and some social features. Lame. #apps #check-ins #foursquare #gamification #location_based_services #logging #official_sites #pivots #pub
The bot that recommends great restaurants & nightlife by learning from the places you go Marsbot helps you discover new places by learning what you like and then sending you recommendations via SMS. Marsbot quietly pays attention to the places you bring your phone, learns about the types of places you like to go, and then texts you with suggestions about great places to eat and drink that are worth seeking out nearby. #foursquare #iOS #apps #AI_bots #bots #location_based_services #pub
reinventing itself as a "location intelligence company for business"...."In the spring of 2016, Foursquare CEO Jeff Glueck went on CNBC to make a bold prediction: Chipotle comparable sales would fall by 29 percent in its first quarter.....Two weeks after Glueck’s appearance on CNBC, the Mexican eatery reported sales had fallen 29.7 percent from a year earlier....Three of the top five hedge funds are using Foursquare data to give them an investing edge." ----- Again though actual Foursquare money or stats is barely there. The article repeats twice the goal is $100M in revenue for 2017. No indication if it is realistic, has a good chance of happening, etc. No mention of 2016 revenue or numbers. So I mean come on! What we do know is "And inside Foursquare, Glueck has effectively redefined how to measure its own success. The company managed to raise $45 million in 2016, reportedly at half the $650 million valuation it commanded in 2013. Glueck won’t comment on that. He simply says the company was misunderstood, and now investors recognize that it’s a location intelligence company -- something that should be measured the same way as a services-as-a-software or programmatic advertising firm, which command a fraction of the multiples of sexy social media companies. With the new funding round, Glueck crafted a fresh “cap table,” which means the distribution of ownership was reconstituted. (That’s often the case when a company raises money in a “down round.”)" #startups #revenue #foursquare #boss #machine_learning #data_analytics #data_driven #data_mining #revenue_model #journalism #year_2017 #pub
This doesn't give ANY actual stats or info. Complete fluff lol. The only info they give is revenue is in triple-digit growth each year for the past three years (2012, 2013, 2014, maybe 2015). #foursquare #revenue #boss #machine_learning #data_analytics #data_driven #data_mining #startups #revenue_model #journalism #year_2015 #pub
Just to remember when the split of Swarm and Foursquare happened. 2014-05. The article itself is woefully weak. It just says Messenger split from Facebook "was largely criticzed"...yeah...just like every major change Facebook did from 2007 to like 2012 and then the Messenger split in 2014. Except now we know the Messenger split was a great idea and solidifed FB having a fourth huge app/site/product in its arsenal. #foursquare #journalism #predictions #wrong #Facebook #messenger #pub
In 2016, a down round to valuation around just $350M. #valuations #favs #foursquare #startups #funding #year:2016 #pub
No mention of valuation. After just being valued at $300M 3 years ago. #funding #foursquare #startups #favs #year:2018 #pub
