In case you didn't notice, foursquare is it's own seperate service, some people just decide to post it also on FB. And it's a little more involved than the check-in.

I guess the new buzz is "HootSuite" as it will update your FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, 4S and even My Space - I am just not that interesting to where I need all those outlets to tell people I am lazy and not doing much at all

Wow, talk about being out of the loop! The owner probably still thinks he's pretty cutting edge, as he logs in using Compuserve LOL

Take it to the STREETS!
