Foursquare is rolling out a new set of features that helps you find and share "Lists on foursquare."

Touted as being "super easy to use," Foursquare lists can be created from a users profile page with assistance from Foursquare, built from scratch or added while browsing Foursquare.

Lists are all about sharing with your friends. Create a blank list and share it with your friends who know the city best. They can load it up with all their best suggestions. Think your buddy will love your list of best food trucks in Los Angeles? It's simple to share it with him. And, best of all: the lists are alive. If friends later add more places to a list you follow (like the Hipster Coffee Shop Explosion list), you'll see everything they drop in.

Not only can profiles create lists, but partners and any pages as well. For example, People Magazine created lists like L.A.'s Hottest Spots and the best Star-Gazing Spots that users can follow:

Here are a few things you'll notice:

  • On your profile page, we've already come up with list ideas from your check-ins, like your favorite Italian restaurants or the best live music venues. You can use those as a starting point.
  • We also made it really fast to build one from scratch - we auto-complete places as you type, and we suggest related places for you, using the same magic that goes into our Explore algorithm.
  • And, if you're checking out places on foursquare.com or browsing Tips, one click on [+save] and you've started a list on the fly.

Try building one to see how quick and easy it is.
