Foursquare learns what you like and leads you to places you’ll love—regarding eating, drinking, shopping or visiting any city in the world. You can find recommendations based on your tastes, your ratings for similar places, and the friends and experts you trust most.

You can edit your name by going to your account settings. To use Foursquare you only need to provide a first name.
Your profile photo and the link to your profile page are viewable by the public. You may choose not to upload a profile photo to your account (or you may upload an avatar in place of a photo of yourself), but note: profile photos are required for unlocking mayorships. You can change your profile photo in your account settings.
Your home city is viewable by the public. You are not required to include your home city upon signup and you can edit your home city in your account settings.
Your bio is viewable by the public. Including a bio is completely optional. To add, change, or remove your bio, go to your account settings.
If you connect your Twitter and/or Facebook accounts to your Foursquare profile, clickable links to your Twitter and/or Facebook profiles will appear on your Foursquare profile page by default, which means that they are seen publicly. However, you have the option to hide these Twitter and Facebook links through your account settings.
Your list of followers is visible to the public. Note that the Foursquare app does not share your location with your followers or people that you follow.
All tips that you write (and the photos you attach to them) will be viewable by the public. Please keep this in mind whenever you choose to leave a tip! Lists you create are viewable to the public. Keep this in mind before you decide to create a list and add tips and photos to it!
Likes and Dislikes are public. When you like a check-in, tip, etc., other people on Foursquare who can see that particular piece of content can also see that you’ve liked it.
When you add a photo to a tip, or to a place on Foursquare, that photo is public.
Your tastes are viewable on your Foursquare profile.
