LESSON 5. Checking In

In this lesson you learn the critical part of Foursquare: checking in. If you don’t master checking in, you can’t become mayor, earn badges, or get specials. Good thing checking in is as simple as tapping or clicking.

Methods for Checking In

• Check into a location new to Foursquare.

• Add some additional information about a venue.

• Send a shout-out to Twitter or Facebook.

You can do all these things on all the Foursquare mobile apps as well ...
