I got a Four Square badge on Happy 4sqDay!

Foursquare users have checked in 2 billion times in the last two years, according to the 4sqDay badge message I received today. On average, that’s 100 times each — “suggesting that while checking in may be the least prevalent smartphone activity, those who do use Foursquare do so frequently.”

Here is my badge

In 2010, foursquare fans declared April 16 4sqDay (4/4^2 – nerds after our own heart!). Two years and two billion check-ins later, you’re still why we get out of bed each day. Thanks to all 20 million of you for making us part of your lives. Happy 4sqDay!

So I am one in the 20 million Four Square users. I remember the first time I got a Newbie badge two years ago on February 19, 2010 when I checked in at SM Marikina.

Congrats on your first check-in! In foursquare, you earn badges for your best check-ins – like going to museums, staying out late, or working out at the gym ten times in a month. Have fun exploring!

Since then, I have received a total of 38 badges.

Four Square says I am an expertise in 16 areas. How I love being the jet-setter.

Expertise badges represent who you are and what you know best. Whether you’re a pizza connoisseur or a sushi fiend, your badge levels reflect how much you’ve explored in the real world. As we introduce new ones, we’ll make sure you have the level appropriate to your exploration, so all you have to do is level up.

I love using Four Square because it helps me document the places I went to. During my vacation to Australia, I kept checking in to the new places. One time, I had to go back to the drug store where I bought my medicines. Good thing it was stored in Four Square. Sometimes I don’t like the idea that I can be stalked. One time, someone went up to me at a coffee shop to say hi…I don’t even know the person but apparently he knows me. That’s fine if the person is someone in my network but it can be creepy.

Do you use Foursquare?
