We finally got our #4sqDay 2011 Badge. For those asking how to get Foursquare Day Badge in Philippines (Manila and other nearby places), here is my Foursquare Tip:
- Just check in to 1 venue (using app or mobile web) and include “Happy Foursquare Day!” as a shoutout you will have your very own #4sqDay 2011 Badge
It’s April 16 today and it’s Foursquare Day 2011!!! Foursquare Day is a global social media holiday that was first observed last April 16, 2010 in hundreds of cities around the world.
Why April 16? Because four squared is 16 and it corresponds to the 4th month and 16th day of the year 🙂
I heard that Mayors IRL from all around the globe have done some official proclamation in support of Foursquare Day this year. Mayors Mike Bloomberg of NYC, Mark Mallory of Cincinnati, OH and Lee Leffingwell of Austin, TX and a lot more are part of the list of real life mayor who threw support to the Foursquare Day 2011 initiatives
Below is the video greeting from the Foursquare team.
I know they will be giving away Foursquare Day Badges but I’m still researching how to get it. I am also not sure if there will be a foursquare meetup somewhere in Manila but I will post here when I confirmed one.
Twitter hashtags are #4sqDAY and #sqDAY so make sure to add up to your Foursquare Day related day tweets.
Happy Foursquare Day everyone!!!
