Location sharing kings Foursquare have added ‘Events’ to the mix of ways you can share what you’re up to and where with your friends. They have managed to team up with 3 media giants to cover their event bases with ESPN handling sporting events, Movietickets.com providing information for all you cinema goers and Songkick covering music concerts.
It seems a logical decision to support events given the number of new ‘venues’ that crop up surrounding big events. ESPN will also be providing fun facts and trivia associated with particular check ins.
Events are now live on iPhone and at Foursquare.com with support for other platforms to follow shortly.
More information available at the Foursquare Blog.
