Foursquare adds Save to Foursquare and Follow Buttons

Foursquare introduced two new features to its existing application allowing online Publishers and Webmasters to integrate Foursquare into their websites. The  “Save to Foursquare” feature allows users to a read a review or an article on a website and save it to the Foursquare To-Do List. The saved information is available for the user based on their Check-in Location or if they are within a particular radius (if Foursquare’s Radar Feature is enabled). The feature has been originally been derived from the company’s previous implementation “Add to Foursquare” launched back in 2010, but didn’t seem to be a successful solution. The next feature called “Follow” allows users to subscribe to any website by pressing the button and getting regular updates to their favorite stuff.

Publishers that have already implemented the features include Time Out New York, Time Out Chicago, CBS Local Digital Media, New York Magazine, Eater.com and Askmen.com

If you are a vivid Foursquare user and do not find the above mentioned features, you can use the Foursquare Bookmarklet which allows seamless integration between your web browser and Foursquare allowing users bookmark any thing on the browser and access it on the application. You can add the same to your web browser via: https://foursquare.com/about/savetofoursquare
