PostSubject: Foursquare: Now You Can Check Into Events   Fri Aug 19, 2011 8:23 am

Foursquare is launching a feature that allows users to check into events — thus making a standard Foursquare behavior official.

“It’s one of the most common checkins on Foursquare: you head off to a movie theater, check in, and type in ‘Harry Potter’ to tell people what you’re seeing. Or check in to a stadium and shout ‘Patriots game’ or ‘Lady Gaga concert,’” the company wrote in a blog post. “In moments like this, a place is often more than just a place; so today, we’re starting to pull major events into our database.”

Unlike Facebook, which launched its event-check-in feature in April, Foursquare is not a platform where people frequently input their own gatherings. So the company turned to its partners to provide the information about when and where events are happening.

Preliminary events will include those in databases provided by ESPN, MovieTickets.com, and music site Songkick. Combined, these events will take place in more than 50,000 venues in the next few months.

The feature is already live on the iPhone, and Foursquare says it will debut on other platforms soon.
