Foursquare is a social networking website that was launched in 2009. Since Foursquare was developed for mobile devices, registered users can take advantage of its features whenever they want. When you launch Foursquare application on your smart phone or log into your profile from other devices, it will detect your location, and provides a list of nearby venues. Foursquare helps you find the most popular places nearby to go with your friends. You can also learn what others talk about the suggested places. With the check-in feature of Foursquare, you can tell others where you are, and check out where others are hanging out.
