It’s been less than a day with the new Foursquare, and tastes are already one of the most popular features. In the last 18 hours, you have already added 15 million tastes to profiles globally. And each one helps power better recommendations. After all, everyone’s tastes are different, so why should we get the same search results?
Some of our popular tastes included ‘healthy food’, ‘good for dates’, ‘fried chicken’, and ‘live music’. Some of the more fun ones people chose: ‘banana chocolate chip’, ‘hot wing pizza,’ ‘student discounts,’ ‘early bird menu’, ‘spicy mango,’ and ‘fancy ice cubes’.
Here’s how tastes work. When you first open the new Foursquare, we ask you to tap on some things you like. There are already over 25,000 tastes, and growing every day. They range from ‘pool tables’ to ‘tide pools,’ from ‘used bookstores’ to ‘vintage furniture,’ from ‘cozy’ to ‘romantic.’ Everybody has different tastes, and so everyone should have a different experience in Foursquare.
You can always add more tastes at any time. The more you use the app, the better the recommendations get.
The new Foursquare is always on the lookout for places that match your tastes. When you open the home screen of the app, we show you your tastes nearby. Tap on what you’re craving and find highly-rated places in the area. And, as you look around the app, we highlight your tastes in watermelon color whenever they come up.
With the all-new Foursquare, you don’t have to know what you want. Just say, “where should I go to lunch?” The app knows what you like. Let it lead you to places you’ll love. Get it today.
