The hot property for 2010 is the social check-in service. These amazing apps have mashed-up some of the hottest mobile topics of 2009 into single services like Gowalla, FourSquare and more. Meanwhile, LBS and mobile advertising is going Hyperlocal. What does it mean? It means indoor maps, finding the location of specific products in stores, and using advertising to drive sales in a sub 500m context.
As for check-in, these services provide restaurant reviews, tips, flash meet-ups, and social network updates, as well as advertising and coupon platforms. This disrupts sectors previous dominated by players like Loopt, Yelp, loyalty programs, and directories, and is now about to be itself disrupted by Facebook.
How will the Hyperlocal scene play out, what will change, and what is needed for success?
