Effect of Facebook Places & Google Latitude on Foursquare Growth? None?

My long held belief is that I’m the last person on earth who has not signed up with Foursquare and checked in somewhere. According to Foursquare’s own data, it looks like I may be right.

So we grew 3400% last year

Foursquare not only grew at a phenomenal rate, they also note the 6 millionth person signed up for service last week.

While the vast majority of check-ins appear to be U.S.-centric (based on their categorgy top 3 lists), there are a few highly checked-in sites in Tokyo, South Brisbane, and Khlong Tan.

It looks like Facebook Places and Google Latitude did not have much impact on Foursquare’s 2010 growth trajectory.
