Apr 1 Posted 4 years ago I have just recently begun using Foursquare and love it. It is now one of the first things I do when I visit a local restaurant or venue. It's great advertising for the business and just lots of fun for me and my online community.
I use Facebook religiously also, and will be interested to see what they come up with as far as location-based capabilities.
Mar 28 Posted 4 years ago I think the other truth is that Fsq and similar - limited lo-so apps probably won't grow much more than they are without serious enhancement. The people that are passionate about "checking in" are limited. But the people who simply want to "update their status" and "share interesting things" (i.e. Facebook) is massive and mainstream.
I have used and worked with (as a marketer) Fsq and GoWalla and I am SUPER excited to see what Facebook is going to do.
That all being said though, they all have their own distinct markets and it is WAY too early in the game for anyone to forecast the demise of one because of actions by another.
Mar 28 Posted 4 years ago I would have to agree with you solely based on my own interaction with Foursquare and Facebook, the bottom line is that I never use my Facebook phone app, seriously... Like once a month at best, I Foursquare multiple times daily, Facebook can add it but I will still be doing the Foursquare thing.

The last mile of social media is local. Apple just filed a patent for a mobile location based social networking application. While all things social enable global reach commerce is local, relationships are local and if we can add productivity to local relations we all win.
The IPad will revolutionize advertising with relevance. Local "connectivity" will add relevance to relationship building. Local shopping with digital coupons and incentives based on user behavior and preferences will add tremendous value.
Facebook, Google, MSN and the small ones currently available and yet to be seen will add the "local" innovation that actualizes "networks" to be more than Mafia wars or virtual games. Just my humble opinion but what do I know.
