http://techcrunch.com – Foursquare co-founder and CEO Dennis Crowley just finished speaking at the IAB MIXX digital advertising conference in New York. Marketers may have had a hard time getting ahold of the company in the past, he said, but now it’s “pretty much open for business.” Earlier this year, Foursquare hired its first chief revenue officer, Steven Rosenblatt, and it launched the pilot program for its first big moneymaking feature, Promoted Updates. Through Promoted Updates, big retailers like Gap, Hilton, and Walgreens can push messages about new products and specials to targeted users. Cr (IT news)
