Leading up to Facebook's location announcement, there was an early thought, that Facebook Places was going to destroy Foursquare. But it turend the other way, Facebook's location service helped the startup; "August 19 was the biggest signup day in terms of users in Foursquare's history." It looks like Foursquare might be benefiting after all from Facebook's aggression.

"Just heard from The @HarryH that today was @foursquare's biggest day ever in terms of new user signups," Foursquare co-founder Dennis Crowley just tweeted out a few minutes ago (@HarryH is the Twitter name of Harry Heymann, Foursquare's engineering lead).

All that said, Foursquare does have to be concerned about what Facebook is going to do in the future. Surely, Foursquare does have some plans for how they're going to evolve going forward and stay ahead of Facebook.
