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!

Thoughts on foursquare

In the fall of 2009, Dwayne learned about an app called foursquare. In December, he started to check-in, and the app grew on him. As time progressed, checking in became second-nature; he now has amassed over 23,500 check-ins and absolutely loves sharing tips, lists, and pictures. While all of this has been amazing, foursquare helped Dwayne find something quite unexpected – LOVE! In 2010, foursquare introduced Dwayne to Elaine, and 4sqLoveStory began!

      I know that is so disappointing. I only use foursquare in the hopes of getting cool badges.

    That sucks! The main thing I enjoyed besides sharing spots were the badges! One more reason to resume checking in on Facebook. Bad news :-(
