“Add to Foursquare To-Do List” Buttons Launch on Wall Street Journal

by Jason Keath on Jun 14, 2010

“We’re super psyched about the new ‘Add to foursquare’ button that The Wall Street Journal is rolling out today! Now, when you’re reading a restaurant review or other cultural coverage on WSJ.com, you’ll be able to click a button to add the venue(s) mentioned in the article to your foursquare to-do list, along with a tip written by a WSJ editor and a link back to the original article.

The Wall Street Journal is our first partner to experiment with the ‘Add to foursquare’ button, but we hope to start rolling out this feature for other partners soon. Stay tuned!” – via Foursquare blog

With such a large recent interest in Foursquare from media companies, we suspect to see similar uses from other media outlets that do reviews. This should continue to help fuel Foursquare’s growth with the non-Twitter and non-Facebook crowd.

No word if this feature will be added to a self serve feature set for verified businesses on Twitter. Expect it to only be featured on certain brand sites for the time being, and likely media companies that have been partnering with Foursquare.
