Foursquare is poised to announce a deal with several online publishers today in which consumers would get alerted about previously viewed travel content when they are nearby the particular destination.
Publishers, which would post a Save to foursquare button on their sites, include Eater, TimeOut New York, TimeOut Chicago, Frommer's, The New York Times and CBS News.
A foursquare spokesperson declined to confirm any pending announcements "at this time."
Here's more about the service.
When consumers read about a Portland, Oregon, restaurant they like on Eater or a museum in Paris on Frommer's, they can click a Save to foursquare button on the websites or using their iPhones, and then the content gets saved for a rainy day in their foursquare accounts.
Six months later, if they happen by these establishments, they get alerted by foursquare about the saved content or if using a foursquare Radar app for iPhone with iOS 5, foursquare will buzz consumers and they can refer back to the content they saved on the publishers' websites.
So foursquare's location-based services and checkins are deepening their ties with destination content providers, offering a richer and more immediate experience.
UPDATE: foursquare used its blog to make the announcement about the Saved to foursquare button.
