Google Latitude Adds Checkins Google's location-sharing app, Latitude, has just added the ability to check in at a specific business or other location. In the past, users simply pinpointed their location on a map. The difference seems minute, but letting users check in at a "real place" is an important part of Google's overall strategy. As Google Latitude engineer Joe LaPenna blogs, "Until today, sharing my location let friends and family know if I was across the globe or in their neighborhood. Now, check-ins let them see the cool restaurant I’m trying in Taipei or join me for a latte at the cafe nearby." And real locations mean real advertising opportunities. Here's the app in action on an Android phone: Latitude is adding a few key components to its checkin offering, too. Here's a demo of how checkins will work: Checkin apps have been of particular interest to Google for some time.

Foursquare gets past the man power problem by crowdsourcing its What do startups strapped for cash — and time — do when they want to expand their brand into new places? In the case of Foursquare, they're letting their users do it for them. The location-based messaging service, begun by Naveen Selvadurai and Dennis Crowley in New York City, has been getting a lot of positive press lately. (I've written previously about the company here.) But keeping up with all of that attention is a different story. While many online companies can easily push their web presence globally, Foursquare is currently only available in 22 cities. Foursquare works by letting users "check-in" to different locations in a city and broadcasting that info to their approved friends on the service. Crowley and Selvadurai have made their product incredibly popular by turning socializing into a game.

Foursquare Beats Twitter to Local Advertising Goldmine Foursquare is the mobile social game that you play by checking in at various locales while out and about. The location-based application has managed to strip the fat out of other location-aware mobile ideas, find just the right formula for encouraging check-ins, and hit at the right time. Now, they're sitting pretty with funding and a trajectory that resembles Twitter's rise to glory. Foursquare, however, isn't wasting any time on monetizing and has just beat Twitter to the business services market. Today marks the launch of their beta advertising platform — Foursquare for Businesses — designed to provide retailers with an opportunity to highlight specials to Foursquare users who check-in nearby and get data based on the location-based campaigns. Foursquare for Businesses is a natural extension of the product that we knew was coming. It's absolutely genius and here's why.
