Foursquare recently added Facebook’s “Like” button to venue pages on Foursquare.com. Users can simply “Like” the venue while on the location-based social website, which feeds into users’ Facebook profiles and into their friends’ homepage News Feeds. We took a few screenshots to show you how it looks.

I’d be curious to know how much Foursquare’s Facebook referral traffic increases because of this addition. Inside Facebook published an article Wednesday regarding how Facebook’s social plug-ins have affected websites’ overall traffic.
What do you think of Foursquare adding the “Like” button to venues? Do you think Foursquare will add the “Like” button to people’s profiles?
