Everyone knows Foursquare … Right? No, You don’t ? Well, you better get to learn about it and get used to it… as this social network is growing, growing and keep growing… Foursquare has announced that it has grown to 15m users, more than tripling its community in the last 12 months. So watch this space.
Yes, I do love the idea of sharing, full stop. So I love the idea of sharing on Foursquare too. But what Foursquare has beyond geo localisation is this idea of belonging in yet, a more human size “community” (I hate this word, community, but writing this real quick, so will come back to it later) compared for instance to Facebook and its incredible number of 800m active users (of which 350m access the site through mobile devices)
It has been a good couple of days for Foursquare following the announcement yesterday that its competitor Gowalla will stop operating in January after Facebook hired its staff. Though this could equally be seen as a negative, since it means the creation of one ‘super competitor’.
So absolutely, Foursquare deserves a pat on the back for its continued growth and Ivery much like the down to earth style of his founder @dens .
