Attention Facebook: Foursquare is still going places

We checked in today with Foursquare, which has rolled out a new version of its social networking service that lets people check in on their smart phones everywhere they go.In August, when Facebook, with more than half a billion users, launched its rival product Places, there was much talk of doom and gloom for Foursquare. Seven months later, Foursquare has more than doubled its number of users, to 7.5 million. It adds about 35,000 users each day.”We are seeing 2 million check-ins per day,” said co-founder Dennis Crowley.So much for Facebook flatlining Foursquare.
