Facebook Places vs Foursquare

As you already know from our previous articles, Socialbakers spoke last week on iStrategy conference in Amsterdam. Among other speakers on the conference we really enjoyed speech by one of the co-founders of Foursquare. He also provided many interesting statistics and facts about the usage of Foursquare.

One of the exciting facts is that Foursquare users have checked in to places more than 500 million times already and more importantly, they check in more than 3 million times on a daily basis. These are really impressive numbers considering Foursquare is not a typical social network.

So let’s compare it to Facebook Places and their usage among Facebook users. You might have seen that we have recently launched Facebook Places monitoring section on Socialbakers. For the Places we’re monitoring at this moment (2 million), there is in average about 1,8 million checkins per day. These are very good numbers if we consider Places have been launched last year. According to this growth, this would suggest that Facebook Places will be soon bigger than Foursquare in terms of user checkins.
