Foursquare API Integration

Executive Summary

Designed and implemented a foursquare module for social engine version 4 multi-lingual website which allows for interfacing with the foursquare API. Implemented OAuth to authenticate users on foursquare and linking their foursquare data to the social engine member account. The module allows the social engine site to display latest foursquare check-ins and badges for a member that has linked his four square account with the site in a separate tab on the profile page.

We also allowed for creating and linking social engine groups with four square venues and implemented displaying of mayors for the venue in the appropriate group page on the website. Implemented a widget on the home page which allows for displaying of most popular foursquare venues based on the location the user is accessing the website from.
