This could in fact be a way of making good use of Foursquare and crowdsourcing as well as getting people to stay longer. It’s also a fact that busy cafes attract more people. Popular cafes have a warm ambience with lots of people, empty cafes suggest that perhaps they aren’t very welcoming or perhaps don’t have a quality product. Full cafes make good money:)
