Foursquare works by using a mobile device's GPS to search for nearby businesses or buildings. The user "checks in" by texting or using a Foursquare app, which lists user-submitted tips about the place.
Foursquare participants can also choose to let their friends know their whereabouts by sending a check-in message to their Twitter and/or Facebook accounts.
