Foursquare had reached milestones since it wass created in 2009 by Dennis Crowley and Naveen Selvadurai. Distance and differences are conquered through it, taking social networking to a whole new level.
This a location-based social networking site for mobile devices where users “check-in” at venues via a mobile device, text messaging or apps awards points to users who share their location with friends. So an individual earns points and collect virtual badges for checking in a certain number of times at different locations.
Users also have the option to connect their Foursquare accounts to their Twitter and Facebook accounts, which automatically update when a check in is registered.
Users who have checked in the most times at a certain venue are crowned “Mayor” and gains access to special deals until someone surpasses their number.
Various venues like SM Malls have embraced Foursquare and lo, Foursquare is coming up with a special holiday for Foursquare aficionados – the much-anticipated #4SqDay!
#4sqDay is all about community: reaching out to people through establishing business or personal relationships via social networking. #4sqDay or Foursquare Day is celebrated as a way of acknowledging the impact Foursquare has made in the lives of its users.
Foursquare Day activities vary in each locality. While some choose to celebrate the day through get-togethers and/or lectures, others do it the Foursquare way – a check-in.
A grand celebration in the Philippines is brewing. On April 16, there will be an afternoon of fun-filled activities at SM Megamall Atrium. Aside from the meet and greet of Foursquare Superusers, this year’s festivities will even be bigger as Foursquare Philippines partners with SM Cinema’s e-PLUS along with SM Megamall, Starmobile and Papa John’s Pizza.
