We all know how easy it is for vegans to dine out, with options popping up everywhere from five-star resorts to Chipotle. But people who are just coming around to the vegan way of eating or are thinking about making the switch could probably use some helpful hints about which restaurant dishes are vegan or could easily be made so.

Enter foursquare, an app for iPhone, Android, and more that allows users to “check in” when they are at restaurants or other public places and leave helpful comments.

How can you use foursquare to help animals? Simply share vegan tips with prospective patrons—comments such as “The vegan chicken fajitas rock” or “The faux-sausage and vegan-cheese pizza is awesome.”

It’s handy for seasoned vegans, too, when we’re traveling or just trying out a new restaurant. And if you check in at your favorite place often enough, you can become the “mayor” of the venue on foursquare. Some restaurants give discounts and freebies to their mayors. Who doesn’t love free food?
