About Foursquare

Foursquare is a technology company that uses location intelligence to build meaningful consumer experiences and inform business decisions. We have two mobile apps: Foursquare and Swarm, and a suite of enterprise and advertising tools.

For consumers, we believe the world is full of amazing experiences. We make two apps to help guide you to them: Foursquare and Swarm.

The Foursquare app helps you discover new places, with recommendations from a community you trust.

In 2009, Foursquare introduced checking in and real-time location sharing with friends. Five years later, we decided to give the check-in its own app. Swarm helps you live life more checked-in, and turns every day into a game: earn coins, collect stickers, and compete with people you know.

The company’s mobile apps, are used monthly by more than 50 million people who have left more than 87 million tips and checked in more than 9 billion times.

For brands, Foursquare provides advertisers ways to connect with audiences that love the things they offer, in the real world. Pinpoint optimizes ad analytics, targeting and measurement, and is the only programmatic platform that has the first-party location data to ensure accuracy and quality.

Attribution helps marketers measure the efficacy of current media strategies at driving store visits. It combines Foursquare’s best-in-class, first-party location technologies with a non-incentivized “panel” of unrivaled scale to reveal True Incremental Visits across campaigns, creative units, and partners.

For developers and enterprises, Foursquare offers hosted technology and data to build context-smart, location-aware apps, which powers location data for Apple, Twitter, Microsoft, Pinterest, Waze, Garmin and 100,000 other developers.

For enterprises and analysts, Foursquare offers our Place Insights product, which informs business decisions with the world’s largest dynamic panel of global foot traffic data.
