Foursquare Founder: Our Drive To A Mainstream Audience
Dennis Crowley speaks to PSFK about getting friends to meet up even when they're driving their cars.
Foursquare founder Dennis Crowley recently sat down with PSFK to talk about how the social location service has been developing. While Dennis spent time discussing the recent developments in the latest version of the Foursquare app he was very open about how changes still need to be made to truly create a system that is usable by a broader mainstream audience.
At the beginning of the conversation, the New York City based entrepreneur took us through the latest version of the app on an iPhone 4S and as he did he talked about the company’s drive to make maps more prominent. On the new version, you can find out where your ‘checked-in’ friends are across a live map. Dennis admitted that they wanted to make map view to feel much more like Twitter for places.
