What is Foursquare?

Foursquare is a social network that lets you "check-in" to places you visit and can also post to Twitter and Facebook, identifying friends that are also checked-in with you. It is among the Location Based Services (LBS) that use the GPS (Global Positioning System) capabilities of smartphones to connect friends and introduce the like-minded, social media obsessed.

What is Foursquare Day?

Foursquare Day ( happens to the the 4th month and the "4 squared" day, the 16th.

It is a global celebration and checking-in anywhere on Foursquare Day wins you the 4SQDAY Badge from the company Foursquare.

Foursquare Day is abbreviated 4SQDAY and uses the hash tag on Twitter of #4SQDAY.

Hundreds of meetups are planned worldwide for Foursquare Day.

This year, in Atlanta, we got to celebrate in the fine weather; listen to a great band, Secondhand Swagger; and sit outside on the top deck at 5 Seasons Brew pub.
