Censors in China have blocked Foursquare, allegedly due to too many check-ins from Tian’anmen Square. Though this location might seem innocuous to many of us, there is a grass roots movement in China among Foursquare users to check in from the location as a show of solidarity for the events of 1989.
China is well-known for blocking access to any service that would allow dissent to be spread. As you may remember, China blocked access to Google services just a few short weeks ago.
We’ve contacted Foursquare, and are awaiting comment. We’ll let you know what, if anything, we hear.
