One of BlackBerry’s most popular features is BBM – an instant messaging app for BlackBerry users. Foursquare has tapped into this and a consumer is now able to share tips on his or her profile. This means that information about your restaurant or store can be shared with others even if people aren’t using the Foursquare app at the moment.
