Foursquare social networking has launched a “FourSquare For Business” featured pages to allow local businesses or international brands to gain easier visibility for their customers or clients. They will create a page, even for businesses without web sites, to connect via FourSquare and highlight their products and services on the site and through the application.
Below is a video showing how the pages will work to engage location based check-ins and real world customers with their brand.
Here’s an excerpt from the FourSquare page about how the program will work
