Search engine Bing has announced that it will be integrating data from Foursquare, the popular location based social network, into its Maps.

If a user is browsing a locale, Bing Maps will pull in quick tips on the venue from Foursquare based on the reviews from members. A user will also be able to see who has unlocked specific badges (though, data about who is currently checked-in isn’t included) and some additional information about certain locations.
