Interesting questions. Time will tell if someone can take this idea, show success and grow a community around it.

A VC: Feature Friday: Places People Go Next: “So a few weeks ago, I was stunned to be told by Foursquare that the ice cream shop I had just stepped into was the most popular place people go to right after the japanese restaurant I had just left. “

QUESTIONS

  • How will people (businesses use this)? 
  • Will they try to intercept people that are leaving the bar and heading for some late night food? 
  • Will someone give them coupons to try the restaurant (diner) just around the corner? 
  • Will this drive actual business? 
  • Will this business be more cash flow positive after interception costs?
