Austin Carr:

What’s more, the tips on Foursquare are arguably easier for the startup to parse, enabling the company to call out popular venue features and embed them seamlessly in its search engine. They can range from highlighting the best bar cocktails to the best secret dance clubs to the fastest coffee shop Wi-Fi.

It’s interesting to me that I no longer check-in on Foursquare for the social dynamic, but instead just to see the tips left at the venue I’m at. Those tips, when plentiful, are a goldmine of information about a place. Some of the best meals I’ve ever had in my life are a result of those tips.
