Today Foursquare announced that users read about new places online can easily add those location to their Foursquare to-do list by clicking the new "save to Foursquare" button.Our friends aren't the only ones who tell us where we should go. Publications that we read online often times provide us with tips about cool places we want to check out offline.
The button will appear alongside location-related content on sites that have structured metadata using Facebook's OpenGraph and hCard formats. Publications such as New York Magazine, Time Out Boston, Time Out New York, Time Out Chicago and CBS have already started using this new Foursquare feature.
When you click on the "save to Foursquare" button, a window pops up confirming the place. Then it's saved to Foursquare on your phone. Foursquare users who have activated real-time list notifications technology Radar will receive a buzz on their phone when they're near a location on the to-do list. Earlier this week, Foursquare launched NFC-powered check-ins, which make the act of checking in feel less virtual. Users just wave their phones, and poof - they're automatically checked in to a venue.
