Leverage LOCAL with New Facebook & Foursquare Features
I have my hands and brain filled to the brim trying to just keep you guys informed about G+ Local and all the changes/problems. So I don't follow news about Facebook and Foursquare much. Not that they aren't important for local marketing - they are!
