Foursquare has certainly come under the spotlight from time to time, such as when Microsoft decided to invest up to $15 million into the company earlier this year, while we also learnt late last month that Foursquare will be integrated with Cortana in Windows Phone 8.1 as well. This time around, the folks over at Foursquare have decided to throw back the curtains and show off an all-new Foursquare which claims to pick up quickly on what makes you tick, so that you will be led to places that are in line with your tastes.

Since every single one of us are different in our upbringing and likes, it makes perfect sense that a one-size-fits-all list is not going to cut the mustard in this day and age. Hence, the all-new Foursquare intends to play a starring role in your social life, where it will make use of your smartphone to figure you out – ranging from your tastes to your social connections and preferences.

Assuming you have an interest in vintage clothing, Foursquare can direct you to a hidden gem that is not too far away, or if you happen to be parachuted straight into a new city because of urgent work commitments, it can inform you of the kinds of food available there which are close in taste and cooking style to what you’re used to back home. No longer do you subject yourself to long, random reviews, thanks to the new Foursquare. [Press Release]
