A Week on Foursquare: WSJ Looks at the Data

An interesting set of sets has appeared from the Wall Street Journal who looked at a week’s worth of check-ins on Foursquare in February. Comparing two of the social location’s most popular cities, New York and San Francisco, it reveals some interesting (but not totally unsurprising) stats:

  • Out of 2 million+ venues, 44.5% had just one check-in
  • 2,500 venues had 100 or more check-ins
  • 61% of the check-ins were from men
  • Men were more likely to check-in to transport venues, whereas women veered towards beauty and health venues (such as doctors’ surgeries)
  • The most check-ins – over 13,000 – wasn’t a venue at all but Snowpocalypse, celebrating the heavy snow fall that week
