Foursquare Launches Location Layers – This is Big: Location as Platform

Looking at life through rose-colored glasses? How about walking through your town and seeing it as the Huffington Post or the Independent Film Channel sees it? IFC announced a new campaign this morning with leading location-based social network Foursquare that will allow you to do just that. The Huffington Post launched a Foursquare layer today as well.

Location as platform. Location-based social networks acting like browsers, able to see and post interoperable location-based data from and to any platform. This is all pretty cool.
