Foursquare reveals the ‘best of’ based on 3 billion check-ins

3 billion check-ins

Want to know where to get the best Tex-Mex in Austin? Or how about the locals’ favorite bookstore in San Francisco? Well, Foursquare will let you know what it thinks.

The check-in social network rolled out its “best of” guide today based on more than 3 billion member check-ins and tens of millions user tips, likes, and dislikes. The guide shows the top places that users checked into in 2012 in 30 cities across the U.S., such as New York, Atlanta, and Honolulu.

“There are plenty of lists of great places out there — some are curated by editors, some by food critics, and others by people with really strong opinions about brisket,” Foursquare wrote in a blog post today. “Here at Foursquare, our approach to figuring out the best places is a little different: we’ve analyzed our billions of check-ins and put together lists of places that people love most, based on where they’ve actually been.”

The social network has more than 30 million members all of which have opinions and preferences for where they go drinking, which museums they frequent, and which parks are the best for relaxing.

“One of the things our data shows is how each city is unique,” Foursquare wrote, “Bostonians love seafood, Portland is a veggie paradise, and Philly may be the city of brotherly love, but what they really love is a good sandwich.”

By the way, according to Foursquare users, Chuy’s is said to serve up Austin’s best Tex-Mex and Green Apple Books is San Francisco’s most beloved bookstore.

Foursquare is continuing to morph from a check-in social network into a more comprehensive location search engine — putting it in direct competition with other recommendation and rating services, such as Yelp.

In November, the company launched its ten-point scoring system for local business and in October it launched its new Web site, which is open to non-members and has a prominent search box. Just yesterday, Foursquare rolled out its iPhone and Android apps for merchants, which let business owners more easily manage their presence on the social network.
