Instead of waiting for users to check in to a place to provide them with recommendations the company is taking advantage of Android’s liberal background update policy along with its excellent notification abilities to push recommendations for places it thinks users may wish to visit or the dishes that could be eaten or landmarks that could be visited. Foursquare thinks it has enough data to send accurate suggestions with 4 billion check-ins and 32 million tips have created an extensive database of locations which makes it possible to send its users unobtrusive notifications.
