Hey,

Im new here and I was just wondering if there is a way to make or get a widget for my website that lets you check in somewhere just as on facebook.

It is a site about cool places around town and it would be cool if member could check in at one of these places.

Thanks

Can you use any of the existing applications for this?
Making your own is possible, but is going to take quite a bit of work.

Look up Facebook Places, Foursquare, and Gowalla.

Only as a user. I'm pretty sure they all have Widgets at least.
Facebook does have an API. You would have to do normal research on each of them.
