Foursquare launched late last week the ability to add short personal bios to their users profile pages. The bios are limited to 160 characters or less and can be directly imported from a user’s Twitter account or created new.

This is one more step for Foursquare to become a standalone social network. It has been regarded as a cool app for connecting and following people, but until now it has been just that. Foursquare has steadily rolled out new features since it was able to secure $50 million in funding last summer.

Foursquare has seen its user count grow worldwide but the three year old company will need to continue to tweak its product to continue to capitalize on its early success.
