I am not in love with Foursquare. To be honest with you. My favorite location based application is Brightkite. But, Foursquare keeps me coming back. They use badges as simple rewards to the users who keep using Foursquare. When you check into a place after a set number, on a specific date, or during an event. You earn a badge linked to your profile.
The Swarm badge is a badge you earn when you happen to check into a place with a large amount of people who have also checked in.
So, this Friday if you live in or around LA. Lets get together and earn that Swarm Badge. Larchmont Bungalow (@BungalowLA) is having a get together. You can learn more about it at http://twtvite.com/laswarm
If I make it back in time for this I will see you at 7:30 PM 🙂
