Pinterest's new Place Pin feature enables users to lay out their Foursquare check-ins on a Pinterest board, creating an online map enhanced by imagery from pinned locations. Place boards help Pinners create visual guides to their favorite travels, document a recent trip or tell a story with a map - all of which they can share with friends and access on iPhones and Android devices. Pinterest has added a field for addresses and phone numbers of pinned locations, helping users make their way to pinned spots in real life.
