Foursquare Finds the Rudest City in the World

Foursquare recently made a blogged about exploring the usefulness of the data the app collects with each check-in (almost 400 million of them in 2010). To quickly demonstrate the type of queries that could made, they ran a test to see what city is the rudest by percentage of tips that contain curses (tips are comments foursquare users can leave for others at each venue).

Only English speaking cities were checked.

Manchester, UK comes in on top as the rudest city with El Paso, TX closely as runner-up and Pittsburgh, PA as 3rd.

Staten Island, NY ranks as the 17th rudest city in the world.
