If it tells you where, it’s probably built on Foursquare
Built on people, places, and Pilgrim
It all starts with the data – and ours is unmatched in quality and depth. We combine the rich attributes of over 105 million global points-of-interest with the understanding of human movement from over 500 million devices, including a persistent first-party panel. Pilgrim is the engine between those data sets, making sense of people data and places data. Pilgrim is our proprietary superpower that accurately and reliably detects real-world visits, and it continues to learn more about movement through billions of human confirmations. Its methods are the only ones accredited by the Media Ratings Council. This foundation powers all of our solutions – those that exist today and those we have yet to build.
Creating the magical moments we believe should exist
Since the very beginning, we believed that the combination of the digital and physical was incredibly powerful. We envisioned a future where digital interactions were less about likes and scrolling on a screen and more about delightfully unexpected experiences in the physical world. That’s why we built Foursquare City Guide and Swarm to create serendipitous moments with software smart enough to augment our real world experiences. This is when our humble check-in changed the world.
Bringing together the best in location to invent the future together
We have always sought to create the most trusted, independent location technology platform. Along the way, we saw how the many disparate, single solutions available out there were holding the industry back, so we brought together the three location leaders – Factual, Placed, and Foursquare. Stronger together, with a shared ethos of invention, we now deliver the only location data and technology you need, and can focus on what to invent next. Stay tuned.
