Foursquare Maps Out A Half Billion Check-Ins
The app's most recent social activity displayed on a world map.
Recently, Foursquare visualized where the last 500,000,000 check-ins took place in the last three months. The global map highlights where most of the activity happened, and the user can zoom in on a certain location, or filter by cities.
The incredible visual almost resembles NASA’s satellite image of the world at night. The major cities and large neighborhoods are the “brightest” on the map as they usually include more places to check-in, including restaurants, landmarks, tourist spots, and outdoor recreation venues.
