Foursquare is a useful tool to engage customers of the business, especially it is a good way for the small business to advertise their produces and services. When users check in to a new place, 3 points will be given on Foursquare; when check in to places the users have been before, 1 point will be given. So users can be stimulated to check-in when they go to the places they like. This app allows people comment on the places. For example, when I do not know where I can go for food, I always use the Foursquare to look for a good place, and also I always choose the one who has the most comments. In this way, people know where they should go for shopping and fun.
However, privacy is a big problem for Foursquare. Foursquare make users expose their location when they are using this app checking in to a place. One of my friends told his boss that he was sick and could not go to work that Day, but he checked in into a bar. His boss found out he lied to him, so he got fired.
Personal speaking, I like foursquare very much. On by typing in the key word of the place you want to check in, you can know the full name. In this way, you also can know how to get the places you want to o but you do not know where it is. It is convenient for you to share your life with your friend.
