Maybe I am just not used to how this discussion works... but I run a
web site that lists venues. In each venue profile page, I would like
to tap into FourSquare and list the Whos Been Here... and maybe have a
link to "check-in".

Where can I find this?

the api doesn't quite reveal venue history

you can get a list of "people currently here" -- defined to be a list of people who've checked in in the last three hours

That would work... where can I find that? I am new to the API forum.

The list of 'people currently here' cited by naveen is in the venue details:


You need to be authenticated to see the checkins.

It lists people who have checked in in the last three hours and
haven't checked in anywhere else since.

If you checkin to venue A, and 5 minutes later checkin to venue B, you
will not be listed on the "Who is here" response for venue A, even
though you were there within three hours. It's an often unmentioned
detail.

yeah didn't mention it in this thread, but it's in the docs:

  • stats - shows whether you and your friends have ever checked in here (<beenhere>); total checkins at the venue (<stats><checkins>); and total people there now (<stats><herenow>). the<checkins> and <herenow> blocks serve as a live count of people currently at the venue: if someone moves, the count will drop

What are the chances you will expose venue history in V2 of the API?
Thanks

Naveen, is there any plan to release APIs to get check-in history at a
Venue ?

Hey all,
Seems like these conversations usually come down to privacy concerns on Foursquare's part.
Has anything privacy related been codified? Like, "Rule 1: You can never see anyone's checkins unless your a friend of them".
If that's the fundamental rule then it follows that a full list of people who have been at a location won't ever be accessible, because you're not friends with all of them. Sound right?

Doug, I'm talking about the all users who have been at a venue, that
data is available to view on foursquare.com venue page. That can be
made available via API ?

Ooh, I get it. Nevermind. One would think that would be API accessible.

I agree. This would be a nice feature since it is publicly available
on the foursquare website without authenticating.

Hi,
What do you think about this page:
http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/community/foursquare/
The "Who's been here" is perfectly integrated ??
