Abstract

Location-sharing services such as Foursquare provide a rich source of information about the visits of users to locations. In the case of Foursquare, users voluntarily ‘check in’ to places they visit using a mobile application. An analysis of these data may reveal differences in users personality in terms of their mobility habits, preferred places, and action and location patterns. This knowledge about user behaviour can be used, in addition to information about their preferences, to improve current recommendation systems for mobile platforms.
