Foursquare says the best recommendations come from friends–and it now will use Facebook’s data to boost its business.The NY-based location service said in a blog post, “By expanding your recommendations to include your Facebook friends who are on Foursquare, you’ll get even better personalized insights when you’re deciding where to go, while still only sharing check-in with your close friends.” Memeburn reports that the company says users’ check-in privacy will continue. Users will be prompted before check-ins are posted to Facebook and friends who aren’t added to Foursquare can’t see where you are.
