Foursquare teases major redesign with a sneak peek of its brand new maps

Following yesterday’s tease of an “all new foursquare coming soon,” Foursquare is now seducing us once again with a preview of its new maps:

Note: Foursquare only recently ditched Google for OpenStreetMap.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

At the moment, only two previews have been shared with the community, so there’s still a lot of speculation over what is and isn’t changing. It does look, however, like the redesign/relaunch/update will affect all platforms, hence the hashtag #allnew4sq. As you can see, this is starting to drive users mad.

Most importantly, it looks like Foursquare is about to attempt a major feat: making sense out of the ungodly massive heaps of data it has collected thus far. Per the maps screenshot, it looks like the company may even continue moving into a position where it could easily challenge the likes of Yelp as the go-to place for finding out about
places.
