Last Wednesday after the launching of what they called ‘Foursquare killer’, Facebook Places, Foursquare saw the most new signups ever for a single day. Due to the fact that users of online social networking site Facebook are getting more curios about Foursquare and trying to compare the difference between the two online check-in services.
Curiosity is the primary reason behind the signup increased of Foursquare. There are still million of social network fanatic hadn’t even heard about Foursquare prior to the Facebook Places announcement. Foursquare instantly generate controversy and possible users right after Facebook Places announcement. The world leading social network site with approximately 500 million users around the world announced to the world that they have created a check-in service like that of smaller company Foursquare.
According to Foursquare CEO Dennis Crowley, Foursquare is now well on its way to three million users. Meaning the company greatly benefited from Facebook places. Foursquare just might survive.
“Look what happened when Facebook got into Twitter’s space. People said Twitter was gone. But it just made Twitter stronger and more focused. Our services are totally different. They do different things, serve different needs and different people, “Crowley told the L.A. Times today.
Crowley has said Foursquare signs up about 180,000 users every ten days.
