I was beginning to think that Foursquare was starting to plateau with the upcoming threats from Facebook and Google moving into their geosocial space. Thus I was surprised a couple of day ago to be checking in to Foursquare on my iPad to see a new ‘Special Nearby’ flag appear which led to a vaguely attractive offer from Curve Cafe and Bar.

So at last some of my local businesses are latching on to the power of Foursquare. I am looking forward to more activity in this space.
