I remember a few years back when all the location-based services, like Foursquare, didn’t have a complete set of locations to check-into. I would often find myself creating a new location or skipping the check-in altogether 다운로드.
Today, that seems like an issue of the past, as Foursquare recently said:
“We’ve hit a pretty amazing milestone – there are nearly 1,000,000 businesses claimed on foursquare.”
With a near complete set, the next step is to start adding features to each of those locations 다운로드
. Check-out Foursquare’s latest update as they do just that:
Starting today, you’ll start seeing updates…from the places where you’re a loyal customer pdf 편집 프로그램. It’s an easy way to keep up with news from places you frequent, including things like new specials, pictures of the latest shipment of shoes, or a serendipitous food truck appearance db2 odbc 드라이버 다운로드. The best part is there’s no extra work for you to do: we already know you care about a place if you’ve checked in often or liked it, and will show you updates from it when you’re in the same city 다운로드.
Also, when you look for places or when you check in, you’ll see these updates on the page – kind of like the chalkboard where a restaurant writes its daily specials 영화 된장 다운로드. For example, when you’re on Northern Spy Food Co.’s page, you’ll see their recent update about their latest seasonal drink 다운로드.
To see what these look like in action, check out some of the businesses that have started sharing updates. Some are national chains, like H&M, Togo’s Sandwiches, Outback Steakhouse, and Wolfgang Puck 다운로드. Some are universities on foursquare, like University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of South Florida, Duke University, Texas A&M University, Indiana University-Bloomington, and Boston University. And some are local New York favorites, like Luke’s Lobster, New York Public Library, NYC Parks Department, and Northern Spy Food Company 원광 만세력 다운로드.

It’s official, all the social networking sites have started adding “promoted” tweets/posts/places to your news feed. It’s no surprise considering that Twitter, with its “promoted tweets,” recently said it has a “truckload of money in the bank” 컴퓨터 게임 다운로드.
Today Foursquare is launching its version of search ads, Promoted Updates.
Promoted Updates operate like Google’s promoted listings or Twitter’s promoted tweets 카카오톡 맥용 다운로드. They are pay-per-action ad placements that only appear when a user is searching for a venue in Foursquare’s Explore tab.
Foursquare determines a user’s current location and check-in history before displaying a Promoted Update 다운로드. The ads are powered by the same recommendation engine as its Explore feature. All of the paid placements will be clearly labeled at the top of the feed; they can include a store’s recent news, photos or specials 마왕일기.
Foursquare has partnered with about 20 merchants, from small mom and pop shops to national chains like Best Buy, to launch the pilot program. In the next few months, Foursquare hopes to turn Promoted Updates into a self-service tool merchants of all sizes can use on its platform 다운로드.

If you use foursquare to check-in to your favorite locations and share those notifications on Facebook, then you’re in for a treat.
Foursquare has announced that your foursquare check-ins will now populate your Timeline map 다운로드. Before, only actual Facebook check-ins as well as location tagged images would populate that map. This is a pretty nifty update.
When you visit someone’s map on their Timeline, you can see pins of all of the places that they’ve been without you having to dig through their actual profile to find location-style updates 다운로드. Adding foursquare check-ins will certainly make this a more enjoyable experience.

If you’re wondering about all your past check-ins, I only show about two months worth of history on my Facebook map 파크라이 프라이멀 다운로드. This could mean that only the check-ins since Foursquare integrated with Facebook Timeline are included.
