Foursquare Hits 10 Million Users
LinkedIn India wasn’t the only group celebrating 10 million users. Foursquare also hit a 10 million user base on the same day. Whoa, talk about a coincidence. Foursquare celebrated by creating an interactive map, showing a series of colorful dots that had slowly spread around the globe.
Each one of those dots represented a user and the growth of the company, which has just passed its second birthday. Okay, so you may be thinking, who celebrates a 10 million user-base with a silly map?
Well, Foursquare also added several statistics about where users are checking in (for your viewing pleasure). The top brands with the most check-ins included Old Navy, Bank of America, 7-Eleven, Home Depot and Target.
The hottest cities? London, Hong Kong, and New York City. As mentioned, Foursquare was founded in 2009 and is based in New York City. The startup has raised over $21 million in funding since it started and rocks over 50 employees in its hometown with an engineering office in San Francisco.
