    Great idea. They should deemphasize check-ins and work on more loyalty discounts, better local search, and recommendations. This is where they can separate themselves.

    In this case they will turn in to Yelp. Don’t forget, majority of the content on 4SQ is generated by the users, who find the check-ins and the gamification central activity on this network.

    Foursquare’s challenge is to become a viable advertising platform without compromising or diminishing user experience. Striking the balance between the two is something that Google and Facebook are still trying to do.

    Things are really looking up for Foursquare. Having emphasized focus on mobile users combined with their scoring system – that can’t be “gamed” as you put it, is their edge. Check-ins and real feedback would definitely provide better information for others to base on.
