    What a great way to keep Foursquare relevant! It seems to have faded into the background lately and I wonder if this will help to boost the number of businesses who use it. I think it's a great service to use to offer exclusive discounts and increase customer loyalty.

    Another social media resource recently released for businesses is the easily digested Facebook for Business site. It explains Facebook business pages and Facebook ads in a way that makes it really simple and easy to understand.
