Foursquare’s homepage isn’t the only thing getting a makeover. Place pages were included in the redesign and now sport a better representation of photos, tips, and information, making your page much more appealing to a casual browser.
Finally, the company has also made finding interesting Lists easier with List Discovery. Lists are helpful guides that provide users with the best restaurants or venues in a particular city.
The changes haven’t rolled out yet, but will be going live over the next couple of days. The redesign creates more value for Foursquare’s website, making it a good resource for finding local businesses. It’s unclear if this will have any impact on other local review sites – such as Yelp.
