Hey all –
Lots and lots going on at foursquare HQ these days. We’ve been teaming up with partners left and right – everything from TV (Bravo!) to newspapers (New York Times!) to movies (Valentine’s Day!) to college campuses (Harvard!)
And today we announced a partnership with Zagat aimed at rewarding foursquare users for discovering and experiencing Zagat Rated places in their city. If you’re in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago or Boston you can now “follow” Zagat on foursquare to unlock insider tips about nearby restaurants. And of course, we’ve added a Zagat “Foodie” badge that can be unlocked by dining at some of these Zagat Rated restaurants.
We also hear Zagat is working on a “Meet the Mayor” interview series they’ll be publishing on their blog (awesome!) and that we should look forward to seeing some foursquare features in their mobile apps someday soon. Stay tuned!
