Foursquare Launches New HomepageBy: Chris Crum - October 22, 2013
Foursquare is rolling out a new version of Foursquare.com to bring some more features to the browser.
The new site shows suggestions for what’s nearby based on the time of day.
“Our new homepage is smart enough to know that what you’re looking for on Saturday night (dinner and nightlife spots) might be different than what you’re searching for on Sunday morning (delicious brunch restaurants, anyone?),” the company says in a blog post. “Load the page anytime of the day, and we’ll show you the perfect suggestions for that moment.”
It also highlights deals from nearby locations.
Foursquare says, “Just landed in a new city? Planning for an upcoming trip? Select the city you want to explore from the bottom of the page, and we’ll show you the best places, chosen by locals. And when you log in, you’ll see tips on what to check out from your friends who’ve traveled there before you.”
Last week, Foursquare announced some big news, opening up its ad platform to all businesses. More on that here.
