Tomorrow, April 16th is officially “Foursquare Day” a holiday that comes from the social media company that wants you to check-in as much as possible.
What does the holiday mean for us Foursquare users? Well, a special badge of course! Check-in to any venue tomorrow and you will have a special badge in your profile. The idea for “Foursquare” came from a user and was adopted by the company as a way to reward users and bring in new users with promotion for the event.
Along with the special badge, the company will be hosting events in 100 major cities all around the world and is being called the first “global social media holiday.” Sounds pretty neat and really shows me how Foursquare could promote other days with special badges.
