New Foursquare Badges
Foursquare is revamping their badge system over the next couple of weeks.
Specifically there will be 24 new badges across a number of categories and the implementation of “levels”. Showing how active you are amongst a particular category, eg coffee stores, pubs, art galleries, shopping centres etc.
The way these new badges work is as follows:
- You reach Level 1 for checking in to 3 unique places (in that category), or the same place 5 times.
- You reach Level 2 by checking-in to five unique places of the same category.
- To go up levels from here you need to check-in to five more unique places.
I am a moderate user of Foursqaure and will be interesting to see how people use the site with the introduction of these new features. You can add me on Foursquare here: https://foursquare.com/smn_australia
