Foursquare Now Has Ads

Posted Jul 16, 2013

Geolocation check-in company Foursquare has now started serving ads on their mobile app.  The good news is that the ads are not that intrusive.  You will not see ads at every check-in.  The ads will pop up after you check in at a certain place, just like you would see when a special or badge is unlocked.  The ads are targeted based on locations.  If you check in to a bar, you may see an ad for Captain Morgan (screenshot above).  [Image Credit: Gizmodo]
