If you’re not a fan of Foursquare then you should probably skip this post, because it’s only going to make you angry. Hearst Interactive Media and Google Ventures have invested $1.5 million in Miso, a startup that is basically Foursquare for TV. Miso allows users to check in, earn badges, follow shows and more.
As part of the deal Joe Kraus from Google and Scott Wolfgang from Hearst Interactive will join Miso’s board of directors. According to a press release from Miso CEO Somrat Niyogi, the money will be used to hire engineers and sign more partnerships, like the one they just announced with the Oprah Winfrey Network.
If this takes off, look out. Not only will you always know where your friends are (I’m in my parent’s basement!) you’ll be unable to avoid what they’re watching (Baywatch Nights marathon!).
