Foursquare Infiltrates VH1 Programming

Just a month after Foursquare inked deals with MTV and VH1, the increasingly popular location-based social network is making its presence known on the latter network via bubbles that pop up during certain programs. If you happened to miss last night's enthralling episode of What Chili Wants, during pivotal scenes like when the TLC alum is awaiting her date Floyd Mayweather at a restaurant, popups that included insightful comments such as "The service here rocks! Great ambiance for a date." directed viewers to VH1's Foursquare site


According to Techcrunch though, the tips are not only being provided by VH1 on-air personalities and celebs with their own shows, but Foursquare isn't even paying for the publicity; in fact it might be the other way around. Needless to say, with over 1 million users deep and major networks like VH1 (as well as History Channel, Zagat and Bravo) seemingly clinging to its teat, Foursquare should have plenty of chips on the table if and when the brand decides to sell in a matter of weeks.

I can't stand people on Twitter that use Four Square. "Taking a big dump at Taco Bell, NYC, 3rd ave, 16th street. I just unlock the FatAss badge and became Mayor of Turd Town."
