Features[ edit ] Foursquare 8. Local search and recommendations[ edit ] Foursquare lets the user search for restaurants, nightlife spots, shops and other places of interest in their surrounding area.
It is also possible to search other areas by entering the name of a remote location. The app displays personalised recommendations based on the time of day, displaying breakfast places in the morning, dinner places in the evening etc.
Recommendations are personalised based on factors that include a users check-in history, their "Tastes" and their venue ratings and according to their friends reviews. Tips and expertise[ edit ] Foursquare eschews the traditional concept of letting users leave long-form reviews, and instead encourages the writing of "Tips" - short messages about a location which let other users know what is good or bad there.
Tips are limited to characters in length, but can include a URL to link to an external site with more information, and can include a photo. Tips can be set to expire after a certain amount of time, or on a specific date, which can be useful for leaving Tips about events or promotions at a venue that will end soon.
Users can 'Like' tips left by other users,making those tips more prominent. Users can also save tips left by other users onto their own to do listand can "follow" any other user or brand to increase the prominence of that user's tips. As a reward for leaving quality tips, a user can earn "expertise" in a particular location e.
Expertise is awarded based on the number and quality of tips a user writes, quality being measured based on the number of views, saves and "likes" it receives from other users. When a user earns expertise, their tips are made more prominent and a label indicating their expertise is added beneath relevant tips.
Tastes[ edit ] "Tastes" let a user personalise their search experience Foursquare has a defined list of "tastes" in particular food items, styles of cuisine or environmental aspects, which users may add to their profiles.
New users are presented with a list, and may select the ones that appeal to them. They can change these at any time, and add and remove items from their profile. The app uses natural language processing to match a user's tastes with the tips at nearby venues that mention them.
