On August 7, 2014 the company launched Foursquare 8.0, the completely new version of the service which finally removed the check in and location sharing entirely, to focus entirely on local search.
As of December 2013, Foursquare reported 45 million registered users, though many of these will not be active users.
Foursquare 8.0 features a 'Here' tab that lets the user see Tips about their current location.Users have the ability to 'Like' tips left by other users, which makes those tips more prominent.Users can also save tips left by other users onto their own to do list, ensuring that the user is reminded about them when they are nearby, and can "follow" any other user or brand to increase the prominence of that user's tips when they are navigating Foursquare. Expertise is awarded based on the number and quality of tips a user writes, a tip's quality being measured based on the number of views, saves and "likes" it receives from other users.On January 14, 2016, Co-founder Dennis Crowley, stepped down from his position as CEO.He moved to an Executive Chairman position while Jeff Glueck, the company's COO, succeeded Crowley as the new CEO.
