The spirit of 4sqDay (Happy 4sqDay 2014!)

The Foursquare Day 2010 Team behind the first Foursquare Day

The team behind the first Foursquare Day in 2010 (before it was renamed to 4sqDay).

Over the years 4sqDay has made headlines, Mayors have made proclamations, cupcakes have been baked and parties were thrown around the world. The app evolved dramatically along with the company, going from foursquare to Foursquare (capital F), opening new offices and moving to bigger ones. The catalyst for all this was the users and throughout the years the number of users of the app skyrocketed and continues to do so (for example: Foursquare added 12 million users in just 8 months last year in 2013 – a growth of 36% to 45 million and usage also blew up, going from 3.5 billion check-ins to 5 billion check-ins in the same period). 4sqDay and 4sqDay fans (and by that I mean you, yes you! Thank you!) have helped with this growth and Foursquare has certainly showed their appreciation. Throughout it all, fun was had and people checked in together on Foursquare. We here at 4sqDay HQ feel that this is the true spirit of 4sqDay. So go! Get out there, check in on Foursquare and have some fun!

Happy 4sqDay!

4sqDay 2014 Is Rapidly Approaching

4sqDay-2014-nears

Wow! It is almost that time again. Where did all of the time go? It seems like we were all celebrating 4sqDay 2013 not too long ago. It is a thrill to gather together and enjoy April 16th with so many people, and it is amazing how well this grassroots celebration has taken off over the past few years. Even as our schedules become more and more demanding, we are happy to know that so many people are still gathering each April. In addition, we are pleased to know that Foursquare is also just as excited. As they work on new great innovations and features for all of us Foursquare users, they took time to create the 2014 logo as well as this FAQ!

What to expect!

Excitement! Sure, some of the folks in your community might have gotten extremely busy in recent years, and they may not have as much time to share in the passion and excitement, but new people are constantly joining the Foursquare community each and every day. Amazingly, some of those people do not know the full story behind this great grassroots celebration that we call 4sqDay! If you are hosting an event and would like some 4sqDay swag, be sure to fill out the form from Foursquare by this FRIDAY (March 29, 2014).

What not to expect!

Unfortunately, there will not be a 4sqDay badge this year. We know that this is a bummer for most, but Foursquare is actively working on great things for the application, and badges are no longer at the top of the list. Also, they streamlined a lot of their processes and operations, so there is no more Foursquare [apparel] store. As a result, they will not be producing awesome t-shirts to sell. With that said, they have allowed us to sell t-shirts at cost. We will have a separate post about this soon. In the meantime, look on the upper right side of the site for a link to where you can reserve and order your shirt.

Start Planning Today!

It is never too late to start planning. Just remember that the first 4sqDay is organized within a couple of weeks. Whether you plan for a gathering of 10 people or a crowd of hundreds, let’s make this year’s celebration greater than ever! Let us know how we can help you make it extra special!
