New Foursquare: Bye Bye Checkins, Hello TipSpert

You may have seen the messages in your Foursquare app to download the new Swarm app. The beginning of a new direction for the location based app. New direction and new logo.

As users, we have created tens of millions of tips on Foursquare. And hundreds of millions of likes and saves on those tips. You’re welcome Foursquare.

So What is New for FourSquare?
In the new Foursquare, you will be rewarded for sharing your expertise to help other people find great experiences. When you leave great tips, you make progress. The more people like or save them, the faster you’ll earn expertise. You know… #TipSpert

You can earn expertise at a type of place (like ‘Dumplings’ or ‘Vintage Shops’) or a neighborhood or city (who doesn’t want to have expertise of Downtown Tulsa or Broken Arrow?).

Once you’ve earned an expertise, your tips are marked as coming from an expert (so the world knows), and Foursquare makes sure more people see them because they’re high quality. And, when you’re looking for great things to do when you’re at a place, you can see which ones come from experts.

This actually sounds like a great idea. Remember when I said, You don’t have to be a social media expert to be an expert who uses social media? This new Foursquare seems to fall in line with what I’ve said all along. Now, what are you an expert in? How can you help people using Foursquare discover great things around them?
