Foursquare Launches Celebrity Mode With DJ Pauly D On Board

Foursquare has launched a new Celebrity Mode of checking in.  Ashton Kutcher has already been a part of this feature and now Jersey Shore’s DJ Pauly D is on board too.  Celebrity Mode gives the ability for Foursquare users to share their location with real-life friends or all of their friends.  MTV and VH1 have partnered with Foursquare for this feature.  DJ Pauly D (Paul DelVecchio) is the first MTV celebrity to use the feature.

“Celebrity Mode is a modified version of the standard Foursquare model which allows users to ‘follow’ a celebrity and lets high-profile users to choose whether check-ins are sent to inner-circle friends or to both friends and followers,” stated Foursquare in a press release. “Foursquare users can also view tips that the celebrities they are following have left behind at places all over the world.” [CNET]
