Foursquare today launched a feature that allows users not just to mention their friends but also to check them in. “Instead of you and four friends each pulling out your phone to check in at dinner, now one of you can do it for everyone. Less time spent on your phone, more time enjoying the moment,” the company said of the feature.Users whose friends attempt to check them in are prompted to approve the action the first time; after that, the same friend can check them in without permission. Facebook offers a similar feature, but the default setting allows a user’s friends to check him or her in without permission.
