GetGlue Redesigns and Revamps

GetGlue, the entertainment social network, has added sports to its line-up. (Just in time. We hear baseball season starts soon?)

Much of GetGlue’s focus thus far has been on TV programs. As part of the redesign, the site will now have a sports check-in button with rewards for those who check-in at games from home or other locations. And there will be rewards for sports fans.

In addition, the site has been integrated with Foursquare, and there’s been a redesign for the iPhone app and website. More info is available on the GetGlue blog.

According to AdWeek, GetGlue has 800,000 members.
