I never used.  I found it creepy and unsafe.

I don't think the "SEO benefit", if any is really relevant.  I believe the potential benefit was putting your location on the map if you had lots of checkins at your store.  I don't think that's really relevant for most realtors (unless you are a broker owner).

I have never used it; not as a vendor or a customer, not worth the space on my phone.

If others feel that way then it may be done for.

It was very popular a couple years back or so but that seems to have changed. Everybody seemed to be checking in. Not sure about SEO, but value may be the tips you get on various places to dine, shop, visit, etc. but they may be outdated

It's pretty much yesterday's news.  I still see malls with "Mayor of Foursquare" parking spaces (hint: in California there is no vehicle code section designating these, so you can feel free to use them... just like the expectant mother spots).  I have never seen the point of "checking in" at an office.

Swarm seems to have given FourSquare some new life and the location based system is far more accurate than before.  The "Leave a Tip" feature can help you make some connections especially if you have left a lot of tips about locations or businesses.
