At foursquare.com, if you go to the user profile for that user, there is a drop-down that lets you set the notifications you receive from that person. Simply set that to "Off" instead of "Always On" or "Nearby" and you should be good to go. On my Android, if I go to the "Profile & History" for one of my Foursquare friends, there's a button directly ...

As an alternative to my hand-researched list, there's a site called 4sqstat.com which provides a more automated access to some Foursquare checkin stats. It groups checkins by city, and within each city you can easily see most popular venues, optionally filtering them by category. Examples: Most popular venues in Moscow Most popular nightlife spots in ...

Venue timeseries data from the Foursquare Merchant API is used for the weekly email summaries which (as you note) only gives aggregate information about visitors (e.g. uniqueVisitors over a given week). A venue manager is able to get the data for top users over a given period of time through the Venue Stats https://api.foursquare.com/v2/venues/VENUE_ID/...

I heard you, I used to rely on Instagram for the same workflow - publish to Facebook, Twitter, Swarm and Tumblr. Sometime soon after Facebook's acquisition of Instagram, they ditched FourSquare's location data in favour of Facebook places which is ridiculously bad in comparison to Foursquare, hence your bad check-ins. There really aren't any tips, just ...

No, there is not a way. However, if you are a celebrity or other popular person (think Twitter verified), Foursquare can convert your profile to a celebrity account, where the default friend add function is to follow, rather than add friend. Source: I am a Foursquare Superuser 3 and have asked the staff about this.

This is an old question so this might not be possible in the past, but right now it is possible for different venues to have the same address. For example the company I work for and another company are both in the same building. They have different venues and offices, there is a venue for the building, all three venues have the same address and the offices ...

Now that the check-ins are in Swarm and not in Foursquare there is a way to set notifications only for the nearby check-ins. At least according to the official documentation.

It's (vaguely) explained in a blogpost by Foursquare. It's not magic like they claim, but a combination of all the 4sq metrics: likes, check-ins, tips, loyalty, etc., in order to have a better evaluation algorithm. It would surprise me if the actual algorithm is known publicly, though. So my answer is: "unknown", unfortunately. Update: blog post linked ...

I understand your desire here. I don't know of a way to do these using the foursquare settings, however you might be able to hide the checkins using Facebook's privacy settings, or disabling Foursquare in your activity feed. Experiment and let us know.
