Foursquare for Business

An interesting item on on the Foursquare space about business applications for the social networking game. Includes a number of examples of businesses doing promotions with FS:

FOURSQUARE FOR BUSINESSES foursquare aims to encourage people to explore their neighborhoods and then reward people for doing so. We do this by combining our friend-finder and social city guide elements with game mechanics - our users earn points, win mayorships and unlock badges for trying new places and revisiting old favorites ...

It is an interesting development at Foursquare. Looks like they are trying to get business' on board before the other, larger, social networks can get their act together.

Have a read of my blog post. Expands on my ideas

Good point Daniel, I agree, as they exist they are not that business friendly as yet, but certainly are trying to make a business play.
