With Foursquare racing past the 40 millionth check-in mark a few days ago, it's time to state the obvious: Geolocation is here to stay awhile.
And when you're as hot of a commodity as Foursquare is, you're likely to have a few suitors looking to buy you out.
So, it wasn't much of a surprise that Facebook was possibly looking to add Foursquare into its online empire. We knew Facebook was looking to add some sort of geolocation feature to its site, and on Sunday appeared to have started the programming process to make it happen.
And the latest news suggests that this possible Facebook-Foursquare union is more likely than originally thought.
Over the weekend, Mark Zuckerberg met with Foursquare CEO Dennis Crowley, although what that meeting consisted of or led to is unknown.
I myself would like to see Foursquare avoid Facebook's Internet takeover.
Unfortunately, the truth is Foursquare probably won't survive on its own, so if they're looking to sell, Facebook has the money and the influence to make it happen.
