Canada’s Metro to add Foursquare feature to news sites

September 2nd, 2010Posted by in Social media and blogging

Just yesterday, Journalism.co.uk signposted its readers to a post by 10,000 Words blogger Mark Luckie discussing how news sites can make more of location-based services. The very same day, Canada’s Metro announced it was adding Foursquare link buttons to its online news pages.

The service will be added to pages on Journalmetro.com and metronews.ca above articles which feature venue-relevant content such as restaurant reviews, according to a post on the Shaping the Future of the Newspaper blog.

Through addition of this new feature on the news site, users can add a visit to a location as a “to do” in their Foursquare account and either link back to the full article or post a review on the Metro website.
