Exploring Social Search - WM Briefs
Location-based check-in service Foursquare introduced a new “Explore” feature for smartphone users last year, and now the company is making it available to desktop users as well. This repackaged feature will help users find new places to visit based on the recommendations and check-ins of other users. Essentially, this will be Foursquare’s attempt at something like social search. This option will be personalized to each user’s query, allowing users to make certain specifications to their searches and letting them filter between places where they have or haven’t been, where their friends have been or that offer Foursquare specials.
