Foursquare launched last weekend a brand new feature on its website that allows you to view your check-ins history. Thus, this feature provides a list of past check-ins from the user. In addition, they can be filtered by month or by year, type of place, neighborhood, city, country, or even according to those who also made a check-in at a given location. You can click on each check-in so you will be redirected to an informative page of that place. The pages include saving photos, comments on the site, a list of friends who also made a check-in at that location, and a Google map showing where was done the check-in.
The statement came on the blog of Foursquare along with the announcement that many other features will be added soon to Foursquare. The history page will soon be having new features such as filtering on specific locations, the adding of advices and also the possibility to create lists.
In addition, Foursquare indicates that users that made a wrong check-in, or an accidental one, can now delete them. To do this, simply click on the arrow next to each check-in in the history list. Thus, you will be able to manage all your check-ins as you wish them to appear.
In my case my history is rather empty … Indeed, I use Foursquare for only a month now and the check-ins are mainly within the UCR.
What do you think of these innovations? Will you alter your history to make it more exciting? Or do you think it would be the death of the service because everyone will be free to adjust its history as it pleases?
