In this war of social networks Foursquare has upgraded itself with new features in new Foursquare 6.2.2. Foursquare got its new update 6.2.2 on 25 June ’13. Now Foursquare is not just about exploring new places and collecting badges and becoming mayor of that place. Foursquare is not just a social networking site, where you log in and start to chat with your friends. In this “new Foursquare” now you can explore new places around you, where you can hang out with your friends and family. You can even check in your friends (with their permission), and search for places with filters like “Price”, “Specials”, “Haven’t been”, “distance”, or “open now”.
US President Barack Obama is also using Foursquare since 8 August ’11 amongst 33Million global users which make more than 3 Billion check-ins every day globally.
When you visit any place Foursquare checks your current locations using GPS of your iPhone and tells you your exact location and tells you what is “Happening Near You?”
Foursquare has started this change in its functioning from its version 6.0. Since then it is making new changes, and offering new and better services in getting more out of your locations. With its newer version you can also check the nearby place. So what’s new here? Well the new thing is that you can also add filters with the searches you want to search. Here is a screenshot of what more and how more can be explored in Foursquare 6.2.2.

Now when you explore or search new places Foursquare tells you what is nearby and with the help of filters you can get more out of your searches.

The Final Note:
With the new version of Foursquare, Foursquare 6.2.2, much changes have been made. In New Foursquare the focus is to attract more people back to the Foursquare app. Earlier where it was just a place tagging and sharing app, now suggests you more places to explore. With more refinement in its searches with its new version you can share new places you explore with your friends easily.
The much improved new Foursquare 6.2.2 also allows you to add friends from your Facebook and Twitter accounts (well this feature was also available in previous version). Badges and tags are still available in new Foursquare and you still can be the Mayor by visiting the same place many times, unlock all and enjoy sharing them with your friends.
If you are a trader you can also promote your business here like restaurant, food point, a new gift shop, or any place where you like to meet your friends; can also be shared over here and shared all this on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
