Happy #4sqDay 2014 But Foursquare Said "Sorry, No Badge This Year!"

Today is Foursquare Day and starting 5 years ago every April, 16 Foursquare user community always celebrate #4sqDay tradition with meetup... swarming party and unlock #4sqday badge... but for this year... "Sorry, no badge this year!"

Are you disappointed? Maybe Foursquare have a big surprise.. big features for their apps... but Foursquare forget about "badges", their virtual rewards for Foursquare fans.. From Wikipedia "Each check-in awards the user points and sometimes badges. Badges are earned by checking into various venues. Some badges can only be earned in a specific city. Foursquare has, however, changed the way they handle badges, and now when a user gains a badge, he or she has the same badges across all cities. Once a badge is earned by a user, it will remain on that user's profile indefinitely."

Taken From Foursquare Blog:

Five years ago on 4/16, some of Foursquare’s biggest fans in Tampa started what would become the tradition of 4sqDay (the day was chosen because it’s 4/4²… four squared!) 

It quickly became a day to gather as a community and celebrate all over the world. From Paris to Istanbul, New York to Jakarta, Moscow to Berlin, and beyond, we’re humbled year after year by our incredible community of over 45 million people on Foursquare and over 40,000 superusers around the world.

This year we’d again like to give special thanks to the backbone of that global community: our amazing superusers. For those of you who don’t know, our superusers are responsible for making Foursquare awesome. They fill in missing location info, update place categories, review tips, and provide important product feedback. They’re a huge part of the Foursquare family and we can’t thank them enough. 

Have a great day, and be sure to tweet your meetup pics with #4sqDay to see how others are celebrating around the world. 

Happy 4sqDay 2014!

PS: Thanks to Mr.Guiseppe Gembelito for the amazing pic
