foursquare is all about helping you make the most of where you are. When you’re out and about, they can help you decide where to go next, what to order, and let you know about all the interesting things happening around you. And, a huge part of that is helping you stay connected with all the places you love in your neighborhood.Starting today, you’ll start seeing updates in your friends tab from the places where you’re a loyal customer. 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. The best part is there’s no extra work for you to do: Foursquare 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. If you change your mind and don’t want updates from a business any more, you can turn them off with one tap.
Also, when you look for places in Explore 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.
If you manage a place on foursquare, this will all be available to you later this week (for free!). They’ve also hit a pretty amazing milestone – there are nearly 1,000,000 businesses claimed on foursquare.
