If you haven't used or even heard of the mobile location-based services such as Foursquare and Gowalla then you are in the minority. Such services, in case you don't know yet, are used to tell the world where you’re visiting,
And now a company has created a service that can show you exactly where these places are.
Toronto-based Sysomos is a leading provider of social media monitoring and analytics software. They released today a free service called FourWhere, that mashes-up locations and comments from Foursquare with the Google Maps API. There is no word yet on when FourWhere will be Gowalla-friendly.
Nick Koudas is the CEO and co-founder of Sysomos:
Creating FourWhere was a natural move for us given that Sysomos is a leading player in the social media analytics market, while Foursquare is emerging as one of the fastest-growing social media services. More and more people are using location-based services such as Foursquare, Yelp, Twitter and Gowalla. Today's launch of FourWhere is the first step in bringing the local buzz together.
Sysomos plans to use their social media expertise and content database to roll out further services and products to support FourWhere.
