  • Shannon, this is a very informative presentation on the value of leveraging location-based services in your business and key leaders in this area: FourSquare & Facebook. The presentation also offers a nice overview of FourSquare & Facebook's location-based services, why businesses should use them, and how to get started. I think a lot of business owners will find this information useful!
