Hello, world! City badges are coming your way!
UPDATE: Thanks for the feedback from our Turkish users! We’ve updated the Bosphorus badge imagery to Maiden’s Tower.
We have a pretty unbelievable international community on foursquare, with millions of people checking in everywhere from Japan to Brazil to Sri Lanka. After we launched the Windy City badge in Chicago, many of you requested them for your own cities across the globe.
Starting this week, we’re going to be rolling out a bunch of city badges, and we’re kicking it off with Paris, Istanbul, and London. And, to get you started, we’ve created great lists for each city to help you explore.
To come up with the places where you can unlock each city’s badge, we looked at the tens of millions of places where people have checked in, and also tapped into the collective knowledge of our amazing Superusers. We’ve got some well-known spots, some local favorites, and a lot in between.
To find out the places you need to go to be a foursquare local expert, head over to foursquare.com/4sqCities. Follow the lists, and, next time you make it to the city (or if you’re there already!), check in to five of the places to unlock your badge. Start exploring today!
And more coming soon!
Ever since the amazing responses to our first city badge, we’ve been looking at more cities to expand to, based on where people go on vacation, where the foursquare community is growing, and places our community has been asking for. We’ve got a ton more that we’re working on, so expect a steady trickle of city badges in the coming months.
