Foursquare launches new check-in pages on mobile Web, revealing more details outside of the app

Foursquare has launched new check-in pages for mobile Web users, which include all the specifics of your check-in, including the address, photos, badges, points, comments and likes. Now, when you’ve shared a check-in on Facebook or Twitter, your friends and followers will be presented with a significantly more attractive and complete experience.

The startup details that “your Foursquare friends can easily like or comment on your check-in right from the web view. Or, they can open up the Foursquare app to learn more about the place or see what other friends are up to.”

F**k it, we'll do it live!

The change is subtle, but given how important a strong mobile presence is, perfecting the experience for existing and potential users can leave a massive impact of Foursquare’s bottom line. This move falls in line with Foursquare’s decision to open up its explore feature on the Web, turing it into more of a discovery service than a social network.

Foursquare recently updated its privacy policy, and will now be revealing user’s full names across the service.
