Foursquare just announced that it is partnering with RunKeeper, an application that helps users track fitness routines, to allow members of the location-based social network to earn badges without actually having to check-in.
The race between tech companies aiming to tell you what to do with your free time will heat up tonight with the midnight launch of version 3.0 of location-based social network Foursquare . According to the company, its long awaited recommendations feature will be included. It's one thing for Amazon or Netflix to recommend movies or other products you might like (that's a huge business), it's another thing for an automated system to tell you where you should go when you walk out the door of your house, what real-world venues you should patronize. That's something a whole lot of companies are going to try to tackle, including Google and Facebook. The Enormity of Real-World Recommendations
In an on-stage announcement at Mobile World Congress, Foursquare founder and CEO Denis Crowley said the location-based startup had added five new languages to its mobile application. These are: Spanish, French, German, Italian and Japanese. He said the new app (2.2.5) will be available on versions for the iPhone, Blackberry, and Android today. The analytics platform for merchants and venue owners remains oriented towards the US, but Crowley said they were looking at further internationalisation.
Foursquare may have a tenuous partnership with Facebook Places— but don’t let the Kumbaya presentation fool you, these frenemies are gunning for the ultimate mayorship and Dennis Crowley is feeling very confident.

Moi je conseille http://fr.selfhtml.org Bon il n'y a pas de tutoriaux mais je pense que le html est relativement facile à comprendre. Donc Dreamweaver est une bonne idée pour voir le code immédiatement évoluer à chaque ajout/modification. Une fois la logique du balisage de description acquise, rien ne vaut mieux que de s'exercer à la main. Et pour ça, comme un juriste ne se sépare pas de son code civil, il ne faut pas avoir peur de consulter son petit dico html/CSS. Pour moi qui est une toute petite mémoire, je consulte régulièrement ce site si j'ai un doute sur une syntaxe.
This week’s episode of Speaking Of… is the CEO of deviantART.

As Foursquare becomes more and more popular, so is the sidewalk chalkboard sign beckoning Foursquare users into the local coffee shop or bar and hailing the store’s current Mayor.
Is Facebook Places a Foursquare killer? CEO Dennis Crowley isn't worried | Technology | Los Angeles TimesFoursquare fueled the popularity of location services, one of the hottest categories on the Web. Now Facebook has emerged as a competitor with its new feature Places . Where does that leave the New York start-up?
Leading up to Facebook’s location announcement, there were two schools of thought.
Perhaps you’ve heard: Facebook just released their new location feature called Places. If not, we have about a dozen posts about it that we recommend. But the obvious next question is what this means for those already in the space — and specifically the current buzz leader, Foursquare .
In advance of Facebook’s possible location announcement tomorrow, Foursquare is tweaking its privacy settings today. In an announcement made on the company’s blog, Foursquare says that its service will now allow you to change your settings to withhold or share more information with your Foursquare friends. For example, Foursquare is now allowing users to choose to share your email or phone number with friends or choose to opt out of all Mayorships.
