Checking in on Yelp not only lets you tell all your social media contacts where you are, doing so can also let you in on special deals at the venue you're visiting. If you have the Yelp app installed on your iPhone or Android, tapping the "Check In" button will let you select the place near you where you want to check in, share the check in on other social media networks and add a comment to accompany your check in.
Launch the "Yelp" app on your smartphone.
Tap "Check-Ins" at the center of your phone and then tap the "Check In" button at the top of the screen.
Select where you are from the list of venues Yelp loads on the next screen.
Tap the text box to add any comments you want to add to your check-in, slide the switches for Twitter and/or Facebook if you want to share you check-in on those networks as well, then tap the "Check In" button.
Tips & Warnings
- You'll need to have your smartphone's GPS on in order for Yelp to locate you and list the places near by where you could check in.
