It’s been called the Twitter of 2010, which gives Foursquare a lot to live up to.
This new social networking site is the ultimate way to enhance consumer-business relationships online. Foursquare provides reward points to users when they visit local merchants, and if a user checks in a particular place more than others, he or she is honored as the Foursquare Mayor.
Since its launch earlier this year, Foursquare has acquired more than 100,000 users in more than 100 cities worldwide.
