Since launching its place-based social media application in 2009, Foursquare has built and developed thousands of business pages, often coordinated with businesses large enough to pay substantial dollars in return.
Well, no more. The gates have been flung open, and now any business can create a page for Foursquare users to follow and where users may snatch up its own customized tips.
Tips help make Foursquare unique and useful, a sort of mobile trip advisor for locations both remote and local. The company sports around 10 million users and is integrated with both Facebook and Twitter.
The main benefit from this new business page availability is that small businesses now have the ability to interact with Foursquare users and provide tips that they can use to enhance their service experience.
