Just like last year foursquare is joining in on 4SqDAY fun with a badge! 4SqDAY is a fan-organized global event founded by 4SqDAY.com. You will unlock this badge with your first check in on 4/16! Easy right!
Here in Indianapolis we have a great idea on which venue that should be! We’ve spent months planning one of the biggest 4SqDAY celebrations in the world with a 4SqDAY Conference at the Marriott Downtown (just lowered the ticket price and they’re going fast!) and an after party right down the street at Scotty’s Brewhouse (don’t forget to use the #ILoveSBH hashtag). Come out, check in, get a badge, have tons of fun, and get some cool foursquare swag!
We’re writing you today to ask for your proclamation of April 16, 2011 to be Foursquare Day in Indianapolis. This day is recognized globally because of the date’s significance as 4/16, which is the number four squared. Foursquare is a mobile application that lets you check in to venues and “unlock” your city. Foursquare users become “mayors” of venues for having the most checkins within a certain amount of days. As the official Mayor of Indianapolis, on behalf of the city’s large number of Foursquare users, we find it appropriate to designate this day on behalf of all the Foursquare mayors in the city.
Foursquare is more than just a new and exciting social media application. Many local businesses leverage Foursquare’s free ability to offer specials for “checking in” to their location. This is a great way to celebrate loyal customers. Additionally, Foursquare builds community through updates sent from users on Foursquare to Facebook and Twitter.
Foursquare helps us find new and exciting things right here in our backyard. Because these specials are primarily taken advantage of by local merchants, Foursquare fosters local growth in the business community. We have reached out to local businesses to ask for a one day only Foursquare special to help bring awareness to the platform through an official Foursquare Day.
With your help we can use Foursquare to drive support to our local business community and help the Indianapolis Foursquare community discover fun, new ways to explore our great city.
