foursquare statistics user count and facts 2023Foursquare is a location-based social networking platform that allows users to discover and share information about places they visit. The platform was launched in 2009 and has since evolved to become a location data and marketing technology company.

The original Foursquare app allowed users to “check in” to locations, share their location with friends, and receive recommendations for nearby places to visit. The app also introduced a gamification element, with users earning badges and points for their check-ins.

Since then, Foursquare has expanded to offer a range of location-based products and services for businesses and developers. The company’s flagship product, Foursquare City Guide, is a mobile app that provides personalized recommendations for places to eat, drink, and explore based on a user’s location and past activity.

Foursquare also offers a location data platform that businesses can use to understand consumer behavior and track foot traffic to their locations. This data can be used to inform marketing and advertising campaigns, as well as to optimize operations and improve customer experience.
