How do I add/create a place?

Not seeing your business on Foursquare? Is there a new coffee shop on your corner? Whether on your app or on the website, adding a place to Foursquare is super easy.

You can create a place by going to and signing into your account, and clicking here.

Creating a place on the Foursquare app is just as simple. Go to your settings and select Add a new place.

Once there, all you need to do is enter the name of the venue, the category. The address is optional. Drop a pin on the map, and select add in the top right corner.

To create a place on in Swarm, click on the check-in icon and search for the venue. If the venue is not listed, an option to “add this place” should appear at the bottom of the search results.


Go ahead and add the place’s information, select add in the top right corner and you are ready to go.

When adding a place, please be sure that you adhere to our style guide!
