I started my new year in an Ikea foodcourt, snacking on a cinnamon roll. I thought, "I should check-in on foursquare, and let every know how long my resolution lasted." Clearly I was not alone since the world's largest allen wrench purveyor (#madeupstat) showed a 74% jump in weekly check-ins to push back into the top 10. The other 13,921 might have been there for a rare sale and free food for the kiddies. The top markets were Washington D.C., Orlando, Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston. If Ikea had named Foursquare, what would they have called it?
Our Top 10 Foursquare "check-in" chart that tracks how major brand merchants are faring in the exploding Location-Based Services (LBS) space. We're producing this exclusive chart with our editorial partner Trendrr, the real-time business intelligence tracking service that was created by New York digital agency Wiredset.
This chart is updated each Monday morning and reflects the 7-day period ending Sunday night at midnight Eastern Time.
Here's the rest of the top 10.
