    I guess it was just a matter of time. FourSquare is probably next. Though I think the "location" thing is a fad. Perhaps Groupon is too. But they are definitely spawning tons of clones. It'll be like News Corp buying MySpace, a few days too late and for a few billion dollars too much.

      I don't think they'll purchase FourSquare as they have their own location product that will most definitely be deeply integrated into their social layer.

      In fact, I am certain of this because Marissa Mayer recently got promoted to "Vice President of Location and Local Services." She is a pretty significant figure at Google, and for her efforts to be taken away from Search for Location and Local is a huge indication that significant efforts are already under way.
