comment When should you use a document vs relational vs graph database?
I realize I was asking a lot, so a general answer would have been fine. The core questions are: (1) Why use document database for supposed great sharding when you can implement horizontally sharding in logic using range sharding? (2) How would you design a document database to use in a FourSquare scenario and how does it handle some common uses (show user's checkins, show user's friends, show place's users currently checked in)?

@EmmadKareem: (1) I'm not looking to complicate the scenario. The only user <-> user relationship I'm interested in is a mutual friendship, which is a many to many connection. (2) I'd like the 4 questions listed at the bottom of the post answered.
