Koprol comes out of Indonesia and the details of the deal were not disclosed. I suspect however Yahoo paid less than the $100M is is said to have offered for Foursquare. Koprol is quite like Foursquare in that users can check-in, find friends and the like.

The acquisition will also help build the brand in Asia.
