The Business Bytes program for August is Checking in on Foursquare and Facebook Places.
Foursquare and Facebook Places are location based social networking websites where users "check-in" to locations using their mobile devices. Foursquare currently has over 10 million registered users and over 500,000 businesses participating.
Foursquare and Facebook Places users can share their location with Twitter and Facebook followers as well as recommendations and comments on the businesses where they check-in. Businesses can reward their frequent Foursquare and Facebook Places users with special deals, offer incentives to customers who find them by location based technology, and interact with their customers through these social media websites.
