Foursquare might pivot into a recommendation engine

Online sources have been reporting for a couple of days now that Foursquare would launch a major update to their mobile apps in the coming days.

A tweet from the company account has now confirmed that something major is coming soon.

The tweet states:

Maps. There are many others like it, but this one is yours. The ‪#allnew4sq‬ is coming soon!

The company seems to be focusing on Maps rather than check-ins. Looks like they are finally prepared to turn into a recommendation platform rather than a check-in service platform. We do believe that check-ins would remain a core feature of the newer apps.
