Foursquare Updates Website With Inline Photos

Foursquare.com got a photo-infused facelift Thursday. The location-based service, which lets users post photos along with their checkins, is now displaying these images inline with checkins on the site.
“Take a look: Your friends’ checkins on the web (foursquare.com) now show photos inline (no needless clicking). Enjoy the sights!” the Foursquare team announced via Twitter.
“We’re getting so many photos, we just hacked up a quick way to make them look more interesting,” Foursquare co-founder and CEO Dennis Crowley tells Mashable.
The small but colorful update adds a little extra pizazz to Foursquare’s web experience and could entice users to engage more with the checkin-related photos shared by their friends.

When asked whether today’s Foursquare.com photo makeover foreshadows similar updates to the startup’s slew of mobile apps, Crowley quipped, “I’ll add it to the list.”
