Facebook and Foursquare talking


There has been rumors lately about a potential acquisition or some form of partnership between Facebook and Foursquare.

Foursqaure, whilst small in size has already been successful in monetarising the business by partnerships with US companies such as History Channel, Bravo, MTV, VH1, Zagat, the Wall Street Journal, and more.

Facebook is interested in expanding their footprint in the small business market and location services will play a more pivotal role.

There has been much hype about Facebook going to enter the location arena, but no more details than that really.

Facebook will no doubt continue with the Open Platform so other location services will easily be able to integrate through the Facebook developer portal.
