Foursquare to Share More User Data
Foursquare recently announced impending changes to its privacy policies. The changes, set to go into effect January 28, 2013, will begin with revealing the full first and last names of users. Previously, the site only displayed the first name and last initial on user profiles. Foursquare will also make it easier for businesses and/or venues to access check-in data by making it available for a longer period of time. Foursquare said that users of its social location sharing service can control these details via the account setting tools.
